The internationally acclaimed baroque ensemble, REBEL will offer an extravagant program of dance-inspired baroque music with the extraordinary Baroque dancers, Thomas Baird & Paige Whitley-Bauguess. Music from 17th- & 18th-century France, Germany and Italy, including works by Rebel, Leclair, Vivaldi, Lully, Campra, Fux, Handel and Corelli, will be performed. The instrumentation of the program will be two violins, cello and harpsichord. A fully-catered, meet-the-artists reception follows the concert to which all are invited.
Emma's Revolution is the award-winning "activist power duo: of Pat Humphries and Sandy O. "Inspiring, gutsy, and rockin'," their songs have been sung for the Dalai Lama, praised by Pete Seeger, and covered by Holly Near. With beautiful harmonies and genre-defying, Beatles-esque eclecticism, Emma's Revolution delivers the energy and strength of their convictions, creating new standards in the art and culture of justice. In the spirit of Emma Goldman's attribution, "If I can't dance, I don't want to be part of your revolution," Emma's Revolution brings their uprising of truth, hope, and a dash of healthy irreverence to concerts and peace & justice, labor, human rights, environmental, LGBT, and women's rights events.
