Evergreen Ensemble performs at The Early Dance Consort’s Scottish Baroque Winter Ball Dance
13 June 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm AEST
Tickets: Adults $20 | Children $5 (no additional charge for students currently enrolled in the term)
The Early Dance Consort are thrilled to announce that the Scottish Baroque Winter Ball 2019 will be joined by a fabulous ensemble of musicians from Scotland and Australia, in an evening of Scottish music, song and dancing from the baroque to early Colonial Australia, featuring:
David McGuinness (keyboards) and Aaron McGregor (violin) from Scotland’s Concerto Caledonia, and musicians from the Melbourne-based Evergreen Ensemble, led by Shane Lestideau (violin), with Ben Dollman (violin/viola) from the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra, Lucy Price (cello) and Allegra Giagu, (mezzo-soprano).
Although this is one of The Early Dance Consort’s regular class nights, they want to share this evening, so it is open to all – please don’t miss this event, whether you’d like to join in some dancing, or come to enjoy the wonderful music!
For all, but especially those intending to join in the dancing, please wear something in keeping with the Scottish theme – period costume would be brilliant. Alternatively, for ladies – a gown or long skirt, and for men – a kilt, or add a sash to your ensemble. Flat dancing shoes essential (ballet flats, ghillies, jazz shoes).
As is the usual custom for the ball, The Early Dance Consort would grateful if you would bring something to share – simple finger food, and/or something non-alcoholic to drink. Cups, plates & cutlery provided.
Bookings essential: Please email firstname.lastname@example.org, SMS or phone 0400 104 969 to confirm your attendance, as places are strictly limited.
