Guardians of the Groove

  • St. John’s Episcopal Church 1 Roanoke Avenue Boston, MA, 02130 United States (map)


Dvorak’s Serenade is in many ways a stylistic departure; often rhythmically-based, his writing here is mostly lyrical. AFC will bring some of his signature groove back, inspired by a first half of dance music: an IDM (intelligent dance music) set by Sufjan Stevens, and a suite by the leader of the original string dance band, Louis XIV’s court composer Jean-Baptiste Lully.

Please note this program will be repeated on Sunday January 28 at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. For tickets to the Museum performance, please click here.
