Description

Music@Dusk

Classical musicians encounter dance forms every day. Few groups stop to think about these gavottes and allemandes as more than markings on the page, but they are important links to a time when dance and music were equal partners.

Traditional contra dance tunes from New England, French Canada, and Sweden

Post-concert contra dance - arrive at 7:30PM or stay after the concert and learn how to allemande, New England-style. A caller will instruct the dancers while Palaver plays, so no experience or partner is required.

All programs and artists may be subject to change.
