SYBARITE5
Rescheduled date TBA

 

"Hyper-accurate yet fiercely vivacious," "Smart as a fox," and "More fascinating than a jar of lightning," Sybarite5 dazzles audiences around the world with their luxurious sound and unexpected programming. They will bring the art of the dance center stage for an evening of dance-inspired works.

Due to illness that prevented members of the group from traveling, Sybarite5 had to reschedule its April 17 performance for a later date.  Sybarite5 looks forward to joining us in Syracuse later this season. We will announce the new performance date as soon as we know it.
