Cleveland chamber ensemble Les Delices has made quite a splash and earned a lot of new followers with its themed Monday night virtual series SalonEra, in which musicians perform pieces and talk about their performances, the composers and their influences.
It wraps up the spring series this week with “La Folia,” with what it describes as a “party episode,” featuring soprano Sherezade Panthaki, countertenor Reginald Mobley, and lutenist Arash Noori, along with featured guests and contributing artists performing remotely: Maya Kherani, Shelby Yamin, Maria Romero, Karin Cuellar, Gail Hernandez-Rosa, Daphna Mor, Mélisande Corriveau, Rebecca Reed, Eric Milnes and Mark Edwards.
They’ll perform a potpourri of celebratory pieces by 17th and 18th century composers, including Henry Purcell, Giovanni Valentini, Claudio Monteverdi, Nicola Matteis, Marin Marais and Joseph Bodin de Boismortier.
They’re asking for a $10 suggested donation, although you are free to donate more to support the work of this creative local music organization.
