10/29: Apollo’s Fire

by

Soprano Nell Snaidas, whose specialty is Italian and Spanish baroque music, has stretched far beyond that period. She translated Alicia Keys’ “Superwoman” into Italian so Keys could sing it with Kathleen Battle at last year’s American Music Awards. She also appeared on Broadway in Hair and can be heard in Mel Brooks’ The Producers movie musical. But it’s baroque songs that bring Snaidas back to Cleveland this week, when her Mediterranean Nights tour (with Spanish dancer and guitarist Steve Player) hooks up with Apollo’s Fire for a series of shows. The program plays at 7:30 tonight at First United Methodist Church (263 E. Mill St., Akron), 8 p.m. tomorrow and Saturday at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church (2747 Fairmount Blvd., Cleveland Hts.), 4 p.m. Sunday at Rocky River Presbyterian Church (21750 Detroit Rd., Rocky River) and 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at Federated Church (76 Bell St., Chagrin Falls). You can find more info at apollosfire.org or by calling 216.320.0012. Tickets: $10-$60. — Michael Gill
