Music@Dusk - Palaver Strings - You can dance if you want to… Part 2
Bay Chamber Concerts presents Music@Dusk - Palaver Strings - You can dance if you want to... Part 2 at The Rockport Opera House in Rockport, Maine, 4/26/2019 @ 7:30 PM
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.
