Outreach

Whether performing in concert halls, libraries, homeless shelters, or for kids, LD’s programs emphasize excellence, thoughtfulness, and approachability. LD’s free community programs provide opportunities for Ohio residents of all ages and backgrounds to experience a wide range of creative, accessible, and insightful programs that examine history and early music through a contemporary lens.

Les Délices’ 2019-20 Outreach includes LD@Work (Open Rehearsals), LD@Play (Family programming), and LD Steps Out (offering free, informal performances out in the community) presented in partnership with Cleveland and Akron bedrock institutions such as the Cleveland Public Library, the BOP STOP of Cleveland Music Settlement School, Akron Children’s Museum, and more. We’ll also continue our residency at St. John’s Episcopal Ohio City and partner with Akron’s Holy Trinity Church in presenting a series of school concerts and other community outreach. Check this site regularly for updates.

Outreach Events

LD@PLAY

LD@WORK

LD@STEPS OUT

Expertise mixed with personality and education–a winning combination!

LD@Work

Open rehearsals break down conceptions about formality, build relationships with audience members, and banish preconceptions about what artistic “work” is. Audience members will be able to come in, listen, and learn about Les Délices’ working process at these events, while the ensemble prepares for upcoming concerts. Repeated listening also provides additional insight into the music.

Drop-in to a rehearsal between 6:30-9:30pm

So fun–kids learned a lot!

LD@Play

Join us for these free 45-minute interactive programs designed for families. Come early to do some program-related coloring, have a drink or a snack, and settle in for a fun musical afternoon!
