What happens in a musical rehearsal? How do you dance a minuet? What’s a harpsichord and how is it different from a piano?
Visitors and residents of Cleveland’s Ohio City neighborhood will have the opportunity to answer these questions – and even learn a minuet step(!) – during Les Délices’ weekend residency March 17-20, 2016. Similar to the Cleveland Orchestra’s recent neighborhood residencies, Les Délices will present six free events in different venues in Ohio City over the long weekend that will include open rehearsals, a Baroque Dance Workshop with live music, and community concerts.
Thursday March 17, 2016:
1:00pm-4:00pm & 6:00-9:00pm Open rehearsals will encourage neighborhood residents and people served by St. John’s Historic Church (2600 Church Ave, Cleveland OH 44113) to come in, listen, and learn about Les Délices’ working process.
Friday March 18, 2016:
6:30-9:00pm Pop-Up Concert (Location TBD). Pop-Up Concerts have an impromptu quality and are meant to foster a sense of discovery for casual listeners: passers-by are invited to come in and have a listen to short, set-based presentations where the performers introduce themselves and the music. This informal approach breaks down barriers--cost, location, and formality--and increases the visibility of local performers, bringing the visual and performing arts communities closer together.
Saturday March 19, 2016:
11:00am-12:00pm: Performance-Presentation at Carnegie West Library (W38th St & Fulton Rd, Cleveland OH 44113)
3:00-4:00pm: Baroque dance workshop with live music for children and adults at Franklin Circle Church (1688 Fulton Rd, Cleveland OH 44113) led by dancer & violinist Julie Andrijeski
Sunday March 20, 2016:
3:00pm: Free Community Concert at St. John’s Historic Church (2600 Church Ave, Cleveland OH 44113)
