Folk Music from Germany and Austria ~ Sat. 11/19
An Afternoon with the Alpine Dancers & Singers
We are proud to host our member clubs the Alpine Singers and Dancers for an afternoon of German and Austrian entertainment. Come learn more about these well-preserved traditions on Saturday, November 19th.
The a capella singing group the Alpine Singers will perform folk music in German, some in dialect, and several Jodler (songs in several parts without words). The Alpine Singers perform in three- and four-part harmony dressed in traditional Tracht.
The Alpine Dancers will perform several folk dances from Germany and Austria and will provide descriptions that elucidate the steps and movements of the dances. The Landler in some of these dances is the precursor of the Viennese waltz.
