Tony Furtado, who grew up in Pleasanton, Calif., in the East Bay, took up the banjo at 12 and was hailed as a prodigy at age 19. As he was cementing his reputation as a banjoist extraordinaire, Furtado was also developing himself into an equally virtuosic slide guitarist. And now, with “Thirteen”, this restless artist makes an exponential leap into the wide-open spaces of mythopoetic America, a terrain inhabited by such personal heroes as Cooder, The Band, Creedence, Petty and Waits. No two ways about it – this heartfelt, multileveled work completes Tony Furtado’s ascent from the folk circuit to the big leagues.

Trey McIntyre Project is a contemporary ballet company founded in 2004 with the purpose to nurture, support and produce work by one of the world’s most vibrant and sought-after choreographers, Trey McIntyre.

Three short years ago, Trey McIntyre Project burst onto the national dance scene with its debut performances at The Vail International Dance Festival. Trey McIntyre Project’s "fresh and forward-thinking choreography" (Washington Post) was an immediate sensation with both critics and audiences alike. Led by celebrated choreographer Trey McIntyre, whose work has been commissioned by American Ballet Theatre, Stuttgart Ballet, and many other top ballet companies around the world, Trey McIntyre Project also boasts an ensemble of top professional dancers, coming together to further McIntyre’s unique choreographic vision.

Since its first summer season, the Company has gone on to perform at some of the most prestigious venues in the country, including Jacob’s Pillow, Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts and the Aspen Dance Festival, premiering works created during annual summer residencies at White Oak Plantation. Guided by the choreographer’s unparalleled ear for musical structures, Trey McIntyre Project’s repertoire spans classical music (The Blue Boy to Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 1), rock (A Day in the Life, set to music by The Beatles and High Lonesome to music by Beck), jazz (Sacred Ellington, a collaboration with opera legend Jessye Norman, and Ma Maison to the Preservation Hall Jazz Band), and historic bluegrass music selections (Go Out).

Because of the overwhelmingly positive critical reception of the Company’s work since its founding in 2004 and the success of its operational model, Trey McIntyre Project incorporated as a non-profit entity in order to be able to support a full-time, international touring company. Trey McIntyre Project made its Company World Debut in its new form at Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival August 20, 2008 and now launches a 25-city tour across the United States and abroad during the 2008-09 season. McIntyre’s ambitious new multi-media ballet about the effects of global warming, commissioned jointly by the Wolf Trap National Park and Glacier National Park for its Face of America program, will premiere in the summer of 2009 as part of the Company’s tour across America.
