NEW THIS YEAR: DANCEBREAK!
Immerse yourself in the folk tradition at the heart of this year’s PUC125 series through dance classes offered in between three of the PUC125 events. This class will be tailored to Scandinavian folk music performed at the concerts by the Danish String Quartet, and led by a professional dancer.  Embrace the folk spirit in these events, free to all ticketholders. This Dancebreak will take place in the Music Room at Nassau Presbyterian Church.

About the Artist

A series that blends folk and classical traditions wouldn’t be complete without the tremendous Danish String Quartet. They visited Richardson in 2014 and blew us away with their unorthodox, laid-back approach to standard repertoire and Scandinavian folk music alike. Now, we get the opportunity to join them onstage for two PUC125 performances, much like the evening with Barokksolistene—classical music at 6pm, and arrangements of Scandinavian folk tunes at 9pm.
