The Allemande is a German dance of moderate pace.  Its meter is in four, which gives the Allemande a stately and measured feeling.  The Allemande is often interpreted as a serious character.  The stately Germanic feel of the Allemande provides the perfect frame for our discussion of Why Jackson? and How do we align an ecosystem of investment?   Enjoy the performance of Kamila Brown, as she plays the Allemande from Bach’s second Cello Suite.
