March 3 @ 2:00 am - 4:00 pm EST$25.00 – $35.00
The solo cantatas of Bach are a particularly rich trove in which to find French dance forms. In two performances of music and dance, Bay area ensemble, Nash Baroque will explore with soprano, Jennifer Paulino and period dance troupe, the San Francisco Renaissance Dancers, influences of 18th century French dance forms on the music of Johann Sebastian Bach. Audiences will be transported to a time when this collaboration between music and dance flourished, illustrating what composers and dancing masters of the Baroque era thought to be a perfect harmony of artistic expression. This program will also include the sublime cantata for solo Soprano, “Ich Habe Genug” BWV 82a.
Each concert will be begin with a short description of the dances performed in the program and an invitation for the audience to learn a simple Baroque social dance.
