Past Programs
  • 2020: STILL STANDING with Orange Grove Dance

    For four evenings in November of 2020 MC3’s StageOne was transformed by Orange Grove Dance (“OGD”) into a live, site-specific, socially-distanced performance, Still Standing. Featuring a vivid light installation of 150 wireless lighting units that gently reflected the adjacent Annapolis National Cemetery, dancers and light served as a reminder of the importance of casting our lights together during times of darkness. With the audience viewing from MTPA’s Veterans Overlook, OGD brought their trademark virtuosic athleticism and the alluring music of Composer Dylan Glatthorn to this surreal luminescent landscape designed by acclaimed Lighting Designer Peter Leibold.

  • 2019: MTPA Commissions 2X Grammy Winning Pianist, Peter Kater for Private Concert

    Peter Kater entertained the sell-out crowd of over 75 people for over an hour, using his wit and charm to complement his skillful mastery of his music. As he played several selections from his album, “Wings of Sound,” he encouraged members of the audience to lie down beneath the piano to experience the full impact of the music, and many took advantage of the unique opportunity.

  • 2021: UpRooted Dance presents The Ascension Project

The work explores isolation in small spaces, anxiety, disability, trauma and loss, and finally ends with transcendence.

    The performances at MC3 also included a collaborative guest work created by Keira Hart-Mendoza, Katie Harris Banks, and feature live taiko drumming by Mark H Taiko.
