Bartholomew Faire


General Admission: $25; Student: Free

"Orchésographie: Renaissance Dances from the Sixteenth Century"  
Bartholomew Faire beckons you with Renaissance dances played on authentic period instruments: lutes, harp, citole, oud, shawms, bagpipes, rauschpfeife, pipe & tabor, dulcian, crumhorns, recorders, bladder-pipes, and the mighty hurdy-gurdy. Classical devotees will be enthralled with this ‘crazy cousin’ of the classical world — jazz aficionados intrigued by its improvisation — world music lovers drawn in by very familiar sounds — and pop, alternative, and rock fans captivated by the music's vitality and drive. There truly is something for everyone in this program of distinctive dance tunes.
