Merrie Olde England: English Country Dances & Madrigals
presented by San Francisco Renaissance Dancers
Saturday, March 21, 7:30PM
Crowden Music Center, 1475 Rose Street, Berkeley

Spring of 2012 marked the beginning of our dance troupe, the San Francisco Renaissance Dancers.  Under the guidance of Dance Director Jennifer Meller, our dancers have flourished and become an integral part of each season’s concert offerings, as well as performing as guest artists throughout the Bay Area including a recent appearance in Marin Baroque's production of John Blow's Venus & Adonis.  In our March 2015, program they’ll delight us with popular dances from Merrie Olde England, accompanied by elegant instrumental music played on period instruments and madrigals composed by some our favorite British composers exquisitely sung by a quintet of our singers, including selections from our 2007 madrigals concert, "The Regina Monologues."
