Les Délices: Songs without Words

  • Lake Erie College

Les Délices presents their popular Baroque-Jazz Crossover program Songs without Words on Lake Erie College’s new Performing Arts Series.

Songs without Words takes the adaptation of 17th Century songs for instruments as its point of departure and brings the concept into the 20th Century with torch songs and jazz standards arranged and improvised by the ensemble. Music by baroque composers Lambert, Lully, and Marais is heard alongside tunes by Nina Simone, Aretha Franklin, Stephen Sondheim, and more in this program of timeless melodies and inspired improvisations. Cleveland’s Plain Dealer commented, Mixing old and new numbers freely, the ensemble liberated the music of both eras, creating a kind of conversation across the centuries.”

Vivaldi Gloria & Concertos

A 5-city tour in the Pacific Northwest

Celebrate the holidays with a new perspective on some old favourites. The Ospedale della Pietà is the orphanage for girls in Venice where Vivaldi was hired in 1703 as a violin teacher and then later as maestro de’ concerti. Many people do not realize that iconic works like his Gloria and Magnificat, which are now usually sung by mixed voice choirs, were originally written for his own all-female ensemble singing even the lowest parts. Join beloved violinist Monica Huggett as she leads readings of these joyful works as they were originally heard, performed entirely by women.
