When: Sun., March 11 2012
There’s something to be said for hearing chamber music within the confines of an artful space: Like a power bar for the brain cells, the dual exposure generally leaves audiences feeling both intellectually and artistically stimulated. See for yourself this afternoon at 3 p.m., as Les Delices, Cleveland’s French Baroque chamber ensemble, explores Myths & Allegories at the beautiful Tregoning & Co. gallery. Inspired by Greek mythology, the fantastical program features several cantatas from French baroque composers, along with selections from the 1703 opera Ulysse, by Jean-Fery Rebel. Clara Rottsolk is the featured soprano, performing under the direction of founder and award-winning oboist Debra Nagy. And while the $75 tickets for this afternoon’s performance are a little higher than most, all proceeds go to support recording the concert for commercial release. Plus, there’s a post-performance reception. Get tickets on the website.
