BILLINGS - Musicians and dancers will take the stage this Saturday for a visual expression of music, as the Billings Symphony opens its 62nd season.
Former USSR acrobatic champion Tatyana Petruk brings her athleticism to the Alberta Bair Theater.
Petruk dances in the air, Olga Pikhienko performs on stilts, all while the symphony plays songs composed by Tchaikovsky.
The athletic performers will express the music through their art.
"It's something that you really get into the music and the way they play and combining together," said Petruk, who is also the CEO of Aerial Entertainment Company in New York."So it's more kind of getting into the story of the music. It's kind of like helping the audience like the music better."
The Symphony's opening night at the Alberta Theater starts at 7:30.
