Nash Baroque in partnership with period dance troup, the San Francisco Renaissance dancers, are the proud recipients of a grant from Inter Music, SF for performances of “The Dancing Master” in March 2019!
The solo cantatas of Bach are a particularly rich trove in which to find French dance forms and two performances with guest soprano, Jennifer Paulino will explore influences of 18th century French dance forms on the music of J.S. 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.
Before each performance, a 30-minute pre-concert talk will include an invitation for the audience to learn a simple Baroque social dance.
