An event every week that begins at 1:00 pm on Sunday, repeating until November 1, 2020
We’ll explore the lively and lovely repertoire of 13th and 14th century instrumental dance music. All of the music is percussion-friendly and monophonic, allowing us to create accompaniments and our own additions to the repertoire. Some of the melodies require Intermediate+ capabilities, but participants can always try their hand at percussion. If a drum isn’t available, use an (empty) pot, cardboard box or trash can!
All levels and instruments are welcome.
