Always wondered what the movement names of Bach’s cello suites refer to? Have you always thought waltzing is a little bit scandalous? Is Versailles your version of heaven on earth? Early Music Underground has a Tuesday evening planned just for you with its newest program, Dirty (Baroque) Dancing, April 19 at Naked City Brewery.

EMU has gathered its largest instrumental ensemble yet–branded as “The EMU Historically-Informed House Band”–and will be joined by guest baroque dancers in a revue of traditional royal and civilian dances. Lully (Louis XIV’s favorite), Praetorius (one of Bach’s precursor) and Pachelbel (you know him) are just a few of the featured composers.

About EMU:

Early Music Underground, a professional affiliate of Early Music Guild of Seattle, presents early music experiences throughout the Seattle area including Naked City Brewery, Northwest Cellars, and St. John’s Episcopal Church. Presenting early music with local musicians brings the fire of bluegrass, the soul of R&B, and the intellectual depth of Classical art music. It’s approachable and understandable, and EMU is happy to share its passion with you.

Tickets are $20 and includes a complimentary house beer or glass of wine. RSVP and learn more on Facebook.
