Bach Parley September Concert
A $10 donation is suggested, and free childcare will be offered.
Click for more information ↓
The Tallahassee Bach Parley performs music of the Baroque era (approx. 1600-1750) using period instruments. This recreates for our audiences the experience of hearing and seeing Baroque music as it may have been originally performed hundreds of years ago while generating a fresh sound immediately accessible to listeners today. The Bach Parley is made up of experienced musicians who are trained in historically informed performance, mainly local professional performers and teachers, and FSU faculty and students. Many Bach Parley musicians also perform in Baroque music groups around the country, such as in Atlanta, New York, Texas, and Boston.The word “parley” in French means discussion and a key element of Tallahassee Bach Parley concerts is the commentary offered by our music director to engage and enlighten our audience. These dialogues give the audience a historical background about the composers and their world and suggest what to listen for in the music. This entertaining and light-hearted educational commentary connects the audience with what the musicians are playing, lifts barriers between performers and listeners, and creates a relaxed concert atmosphere with an informed and engaged audience.Other programs include “Kids Go For B'roque,” a competition and honors concert featuring talented young musicians from the community performing the music of the Baroque period. We also run the Bach Parley String Academy and offer lessons on violin, viola, and cello as well as ukulele classes.

Bach Parley "Zodiac Suites and Vivaldi Concertos"
A $10 donation is suggested, and free childcare will be offered.
Click for more information ↓
Tallahassee Bach Parley Opens Concert Season with Zodiac Suites & Vivaldi ConcertosThe Tallahassee Bach Parley regular season opens September 22 with “Zodiac Suites & Vivaldi Concertos,” a concert of music with calendar themes. The Bach Parley will perform two Vivaldi concertos for flute, violin, and bassoon, two suites (Aries and Gemini) from “Zodiaci musici” by Johann Abraham Schmierer, a “September” suite by Gregor Joseph Werner (Haydn's predecessor), and a piece written specifically for a “Bean Feast” by Heinrich Schmeltzer for a comic ending to the concert.The performers are violinists Valerie Arsenault and Carrie Holden, violists Melissa Brewer and Brian Arsenault, cellist Kim Jones, bassist Melanie Punter, bassoonist Nina Scheibe, and Eva Amsler on traverso flute.This is music director Valerie Arsenault's 12th year leading the Bach Parley. The Bach Parley performs primarily on period instruments – harpsichord and baroque style stringed instruments with gut strings, and on this concert, the flute is called a traverso, which is an early wooden version of the flute without keys to press down. The French word “parley” means discussion, and a key element of Bach Parley concerts is the commentary provided by Arsenault who gives historical context about the composers and the instruments, and offers suggestions about what to listen for in the music.“Vivaldi is a perennial favorite, and our calendar theme also includes two pieces written for different signs of the Zodiac (Aries and Gemini), a piece written to represent the month of September (including students returning from vacation), along with a “Bean Feast” by Schmeltzer,” says Arsenault. “I'm definitely going to have our Bach Parley musicologist Charles Brewer explain the joke in that one!”The Tallahassee Bach Parley is also the umbrella organization for a non-profit music school, The Bach Parley String Academy, now in its fifth year offering violin, viola, and cello lessons at St. John's Episcopal Church. The concert will be at 3 PM on Sunday, September 22 at St. John's Episcopal Church, 211 North Monroe Street in Tallahassee. At all Sunday Tallahassee Bach Parley concerts this season, patrons will receive an insert in their programs with a discount coupon to use after the concert at participating downtown area restaurants. A $10 donation is suggested, and free childcare will be available.For additional information about the Tallahassee Bach Parley, including the Bach Parley String Academy music school, visit www.bachparley.org.Enjoy the music, the venue, and the magic of Baroque instruments with the Tallahassee Bach Parley!

Clogging Lessons - Beginner
Click for more information ↓
The Mountain Dew Clogging organization is a family oriented group comprised of people of all ages from all of the counties surrounding Tallahassee.Clogging gives you the opportunity to get out and enjoy a great social activity and get fit at the same time. Your legs will tone up very quickly. Clogging improves flexibility, coordination, endurance and strength. It increases lung capacity, relieves stress, and it's aerobic and burns fat. Clogging is usually danced in lines because there is a better social group feeling when you can see that your new friends are dancing the same routines as you. Some couple and partner routines are taught to keep in touch with the historic Appalachian clogging styles.The instructors teach both the steps and the routines. During classes the instructors cue or call all routines every time they are danced during the learning phase. This means once you know the steps at a given level, you can quickly join in with routines you have never seen.You will find you dance many and varied routines to pretty much all types of music, although country and top 100 current tunes are the most popular.Taps are a double jingle tap ordered from one of our suppliers. The sound of all the taps beating to the music, gets everybody tapping to the rhythms. In clogging the heel tap is used to give a strong regular beat during most steps.Like other worthwhile sporting activities, to progress quickly you may need to practice more than once a week at class. The good news is you can practice anywhere.

Come join Grant and his longtime sidekick, bassist Erik Alvar as they preview selections from Grant's upcoming new album, to be released early in 2020. A self-described “tree-hugger that watches NASCAR, and Buddhist with a gun below the seat,” Grant Peeples is known for his axe-sharp socio-political tunes, raucous humor and heart-gigging ballads. Grant tours coast to coast, and is a regular performer at The Woody Guthrie Folk Festival, the 30A Songwriters Festival, and The Florida, Folk Festival. January 2019 marked a second tour in The Netherlands, where FolkForum.nl described him “…a pure storyteller, in the best American folk tradition…” and his show “…one of those gems that you will remember for a long time…” From traditional to modern and from bluegrass to jazz, classical, and beyond Erik Alvar has studied and performed with some of the most revered musicians in their respected genres. After earning a master's degree from the University of Florida, where he was fully funded working as a jazz graduate assistant, Alvar made the move to Brooklyn, NY where he is swiftly finding his way into the local music scene. He has worked with bands such as Billy Strings, the Jim Hurst Trio, and Rebecca Frazier. While there he also performed on the second national tour of A Christmas Story, a Musical out of New York City along with other theater productions such as Hank and My Honky Tonk Heroes and Classic Nashville Roadshow.
