A Renaissance Christmas: Music Of Flanders and Italy Circa 1500
Folger TheatreDecember 18, 2014 7:30 PM
201 East Capitol Street Southeast
Washington DC, DC 20003
The voices, winds and strings in the festively decorated Elizabethan theater perform Yuletide music and more from the Renaissance Era, which gifted the world with a wide variety of both traditional carols and choral masterpieces. For this concert, they'll be showcasing the music of Flanders and Italy circa 1500. It was a time when the traditional music of the courts of Italy was becoming influenced by the more popular native Italian style, much of it venerating Mary. On the program will be works by Josquin, Ockeghem, Obrecht and Compère. There will be a pre-concert discussion with Robert Aubry Davis.
Bad Jews is contemporary stage production that follows the story of a Jewish family that has just lost their beloved grandfather. A sharp comedy with raw undertones of cultural versus religious Judaism, the show is centered on the dynamics and politics of being in a large, close-knit family.

The "Washington Post" has called WIT "some of the most exciting live entertainment in Washington," so you're sure to be in for a holiday treat.

Though Bear Hands doesn't create anything particularly unique, it manages to make some decent rock with catchy choruses and fairly well-written melodies
