Early Music Now Brings Ellen Hargis and Paul O’Dette Back to Milwaukee
Soprano and lutenist to perform 17th-century Italian program March 16  
 
Long-time colleagues Ellen and Paul O’Dette bring drama, fun, and musical imagination to their performances, and Early Music Now welcomes them back to Milwaukee for an evening of 17th-century Venetian and Roman music.  The concert, titled, “Wait! I’m Singing Now…” will be at UWM’s Zelazo Center, 2419 E. Kenwood Blvd, on Saturday, March 16 at 5:00, preceded by Early Music Now’s annual silent auction and chocolate reception at 3:00.
 
Friends and colleagues for more than 25 years, soprano Ellen Hargis and lutenist Paul O’Dette bring an incomparable spirit of drama, vivid musical imagination and fun to their collaborations.  Hargis is one of America’s premier early music singers, specializing in repertoire ranging from ballads to opera and oratorio. She works with many of the foremost period music conductors of the world.  O’Dette has been called "the clearest case of genius ever to touch his instrument"   by the Toronto Globe and Mail.  His performances at major international festivals are often singled out as the highlight.  Best known for his recitals and recordings of virtuoso solo lute music, O'Dette also maintains an active international career as an ensemble musician.
 
“Wait! I’m Singing Now…” includes Barbara Strozzi’s hilarious cantata L’astratto about a singer who can’t find the right song to express her mood, Antonio Cesti’s sarcastic Aspette!  adesso canto about a singer who can’t find a song worthy of her good taste, and Alessandro Scarlatti’s extraordinary L’Orfeo expressing the voice of the legendary singer of Thrace. Kapsberger and Piccinini chitarrone solos explore the virtuoso repertoire of the 17th-century’s most prized vocal accompanying instrument.
 
Tickets are available in the Preferred and General Admission seating sections. Single ticket prices range from $25-$40 for adults and seniors, and $10-$20 for students (six or older). There are no handling or service fees. Tickets may be purchased online at www.earlymusicnow.org, by phone at 414.225.3113, or by mail at 759 N Milwaukee Street, Suite 420, Milwaukee 53202.
