September Artist of the Month: Music- Les Delices
Meet our visual artist of the month for September! It’s Les Delices.
Les Délices (pronounced Lay day-lease)is a celebrated early music ensemble that explores the dramatic potential and emotional resonance of long-forgotten music. Founded by baroque oboist Debra Nagy in 2009, Les Délices has established a reputation for programs that are “thematically concise, richly expressive, and featuring composers few people have heard of.” The New York Times added, “Concerts and recordings by Les Délices are journeys of discovery.” Highlights from recent seasons include a “sensational” virtual 2020-21 season, the acclaimed launch of Salon Era, performances for Music Before 1800, Boston’s Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, San Francisco Early Music Society, the Yale Collection of Musical Instruments, and at Columbia University’s Miller Theater. Visit www.lesdelices.org for more information.
Les Délices’ 2021-22 season “Until Sky Above” features 5 unique Concert Series programs and 12 new episodes of its classical music-focused web series, Salon Era. Taking a hybrid approach, all five Concert Series programs will be released online via Marquee TV, ensuring an immersive, accessible at-home concert experience. Les Délices will return to in-person performances in NE Ohio in February 2022 for a brand-new Medieval program “Of Gods & Heroes” and in April 2022 for a family-friendly opera production, The White Cat. Season subscriptions ($125-$200) are on sale now!
