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 Baroque Dance class will be centered around the Chaconne step and taught by professional dancer Carlos Fittante. Dancebreak is free to all ticketholders. and will take place in the Assembly Room at Nassau Presbyterian Church, right across the parking lot from Richardson Auditorium. Please use the entrance on the parking lot side of the church. For dancing, we recommend that you wear comfortable clothes. The class will last one hour, and will be finished by 8:30pm in order to allow the 9:00pm ticketholders enough time to make the concert.
PLEASE NOTE: You must have purchased tickets to one of the concerts in order to attend Dancebreak. Tickets will be checked at the door.
Although J.S. Bach is not typically categorized as “folk music,” much of his work found origins in the rhythms and tunes of dance. Trailblazing violinist Jennifer Koh explores these connections in a program based on one of Bach’s greatest dances, the Chaconne from his Violin Partita in D Minor. She will perform this pillar of classical music, followed by contemporary music that explicitly looks to it for inspiration.
