Don’t miss the Mark Morris Dance Group’s return to the Prospect Park band shell on July 26 at 8 pm as part of the annual performing arts series Celebrate Brooklyn. The dance group will perform "Canonic 3/4 Studies" (1982) which is set to piano waltzes, "The Argument," a 1999 work set to Robert Schumann’s Five Studies in Folk Style, Op. 102, and "Gloria" (1984).

"Gloria" is an example of the long-standing ties the Morris troupe, which opened its Fort Greene dance center in September, has had with Brooklyn. The 18-year-old piece was the first dance the group has ever performed at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, and the classic work was last seen there in March as part of their 20th anniversary season. "Gloria" (pictured) is set to Vivaldi’s "Gloria in D Major."

The dancers will be accompanied by Mark Morris musical director and pianist Ethan Iverson and cellist Wolfram Koessel for "The Argument" and by Iverson for "Canonic 3/4 Studies." The performance will take place at the Prospect Park band shell, located at Ninth Street at Prospect Park West. For more information, call (718) 855-7882 ext. 45, or visit the Web site at Rain or shine. A $3 donation is suggested.
