SPECIAL EVENT: Jazz Brunch at Nighttown
Sunday September 24 at 12:30pm
Join us in celebrating the start of Les Délices’ 9th Season and the début of our newest CD at this Jazz Brunch! Our celebration happens at Nighttown, featuring music from our popular jazz-crossover program “Songs without Words.” Watch for your invitation!
October 21 & 22, 2017
Les Délices explores Parisian counterculture around 1700, and the vogue for all things Italian in this program of new-to-you music. Violinist Julie Andrijeski will dazzle with virtuosic pieces that wear their hearts on their sleeves.
January 13 & 14, 2018
A new Medieval program from Les Délices focused on sounds, scents, and substances that entrance, elevate, and excite our senses. Hear Elena Mullins (soprano), Jason McStoots (tenor), Scott Metcalfe (vielle, harp), Charlie Weaver (lute), and Debra Nagy (voice, and medieval winds).
March 10 & 11, 2018
Les Délices introduces two very special guests – soprano Margot Rood and the incredible Irish harpist Maria Cleary – in this program that imagines Dido, Queen of Carthage, (famously deserted by Aeneas) from three emotional and musical perspectives: Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas, Cavalli’s Didone, and Montéclair’s La Mort de Didon.
Let the Heavens Rejoice
April 27-29, 2018
Les Délices teams up with Quire Cleveland for a thrilling program of music by Rameau, Mondonville, and other composers. Three performances in Akron, Cleveland, and Shaker Heights.
