San Francisco Renaissance Voices & Dancers:  Assistant Music Director, Katherine McKee, conducting with period instruments

Ludus Danielis or "The Play of Daniel") was written by students at the Beauvais Cathedral in France some time between 1227-1234 and is one of the earliest examples of what we now call opera.  San Francisco Renaissance Voices' Assistant Music Director, Katherine McKee, will conduct this semi-staged production and will be joined by members of our dance troupe and an exciting array of instrumentalists playing shawm, curtal, recorders, bowed psaltery, harp, lute and all sorts of percussion.  Rabbi Reuben Zellman (also a San Francisco Renaissance Voices tenor who will be singing the part of Habbakuk) gives a pre-concert lecture a half-hour before each performance.  Join us for this exciting ending to our ninth season & a great show for the entire family!
