ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Process
In celebration of the 75th Anniversary of the 1939 Classic Judy Garland Movie, "The Wizard of Oz", Virginia and Megumi set out to create yet another inspired original ballet for their Annual Spring performance.

And…. how much fun everyone had!

Loosely based on the 1900 Fran Baum Novel, our Ballet chronicles the adventures of a young girl named Dorothy Gale in the Land of Oz, after being swept away from her Kansas farm home in a cyclone.

Over many months Megumi researched appropriate music, which she then played for our ballet classes.
We then picked music that best represented the story line and our dancers qualities, then fully adapted them for the production.

Megumi's versitility and musical choices were so many, it was hard to choose which ones to use!

What you find here is the “complete” "Wizard of Oz Ballet " as it was presented at the Kahilu Theatre, Kamuela, Hawaii on May 24, 2014.

Our production was Directed by Virginia Holte and Midori Satoh, with additional choreography by Academy Instructors Jenna Power, Megan Joy Chapman, and Claire "Miss Kitty" Hollinger. Megumi Kopp accompanied the dancers and singers on piano, while Barbara Pritchard narrated the story.

Amazingly, all of the music also fits perfectly to accompany a complete ballet class.

We hope you also enjoy this new creation, and all the other Masterpieces by Megumi Kopp!

Biographies

After moving to Kailua-Kona, Hawaii in 1999, and with encouragement from her friend and West Hawaii Dance Academy Co-Director, Midori Satoh, Megumi began accompanying ballet class at West Hawaii Dance Academy in 2005. With the assistance and guidance of West Hawaii Dance Theatre’s Artistic Director, Virginia Holte, Megumi has played and arranged music for numerous performances, including “Nutcracker”, “Les Sylphide”, “Don Quixote”, full length “Swan Lake”, “Coppelia” and the original “Alice in Wonderland” Ballet.

The “The Little Mermaid Ballet ” Music was so popular with the students, that they requested it to be played for their ballet technique classes.

Thus was the inspiration for Megumi’s Third CD .

Megumi’s Debut CD, released in 2011 is entitled: Ballet Class: Piano Music from Hawaii.
Her Second CD is Ballet Class with Alice in Wonderland".

And now, we welcome "The Wizard of Oz".


Besides accompanying the dancers at West Hawaii Dance Academy, Megumi teaches piano to children and adults.
