Early 17th century music is perfect for showing improvisation in the Baroque, and the musical innovations of 1629 Venice were a giant leap forward in Baroque instrumental music. Passamezzo Moderno will feature works by Dario Castello, Biagio Marini, and Guiseppe Scarani, all published or written in Venice in 1629, as well works by 17th century Italian women composers, Elisabeth-Claude Jacquet de la Guerre and Isabella Leonarda, in honor of International Women's Day 2015.

The California Jazz Conservatory is located on Addison between Shattuck and Milvia in downtown Berkeley. It is one block from the downtown Berkeley BART station, and parking is available at the Addison Street parking garage. Street parking is free on Sundays and also relatively easy in the afternoon. The school's café is open prior to and during the concert, allowing audience members to enjoy a glass of wine, coffee, or a light snack.
All tickets are $15; reservations are highly recommended as the venue is small and intimate. Reservations and more information are available at the websites above or at www.passamezzomoderno.com.
