Wednesday July 29, 2020

Virtual Event Virtual Event

How do YOU pronounce the word “squirrel?” Does “you” ever rhyme with “cow”? Does “Blowin’ in the Wind” rhyme with “Love is Blind”? And what if it were all Hebrew to you? Join Music Director Richard Egarr and Jews & Music Scholar-in-Residence Francesco Spagnolo for the answers and to explore the effect of how the pronunciation of words and text in the past can change our ideas and help in performance of music of the past. Plus, we’ll enjoy selections by Dowland, Purcell, and Rossi.  Special guests will include:

William Skeen, viola da gamba
Tonia d’Amelio, soprano
David Kurtenbach Rivera, tenor
