When: Sun., July 5 2020
Burning River Baroque, a group of local classical musicians that’s performed extensively throughout Northeast Ohio and has also played major markets such as Boston, New York and Berkeley, opens its season today with Witches: Revered & Reviled, a piece that "delves into early modern society’s desire for an ordered society, a trend that frequently led to the persecution of individuals accused of straying outside the established conventional boundaries." In particular, the program focuses on the criminalization of women who were labelled as "not fitting into social norms." Performances continue through July 11 at venues throughout Northeast Ohio. A complete schedule for the performances can be found on the website. All public performances have a $10 to $20 suggested donation. (Jeff Niesel) burning-river-baroque.org.
