(McKenzieNewsService.com) - Indianapolis Early Music
launches its 49th season in the beautiful auditorium of
the Indiana History Center located in the heart of downtown on the canal
(450 W. Ohio
St., Indianapolis, IN).
Matthias Maute, who holds an
international reputation as conductor, composer, recorder and flute player,
begins the Festival on June 19th. Mr. Maute is esteemed for his artistic
direction of Ensemble Caprice, for whom he produces ingenious and fascinating
programs. He will perform again, with them, on June 21st in a program called
“Salsa Baroque” featuring the music of Spain and Latin America.
Weekend two of the Festival will
include a June 26th performance by Nell Snaidas, who has been praised for her
“beautiful soprano voice, melting passion” and “vocally ravishing” performances.
Snaidas has been invited to join many leading Early Music ensembles throughout
America and Europe.
The Rose Ensemble, on June 28, will
perform the Land of Three Faiths: Voices of Ancient Mediterranean Jews,
Christians, and Muslims. The result of years of intensive research and training,
the program is at once sacred, secular, folk, and classical, embarking on a
fascinating exploration of language, spirituality, and cultural exchange.
Weekend three, taking place on July
10 and 12 will include Trio Setticento and also Rachel Barton Pine.
Tickets are $22; students with ID,

Indianapolis Early Music:
Indianapolis Early Music (IEM) is America's oldest
continuous presenter of Early Music. Originally known by its corporate name of
Festival Music Society, it was established in 1966 as a not-for-profit
organization to enrich, educate, and entertain audiences with the music of
Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque and early classic eras. IEM is chiefly known for
its annual summer Early Music Festival, a series of six concerts over four
weeks. It presented its first festival in 1967. The Festival presents national
and international performers, performing on instruments of the period. In
addition, IEM presents a concert in the spring often featuring well-known groups
on tour or those who are developing a following. Educational outreach is also a
component of Indianapolis Early Music. Programs are regularly developed and
presented to area middle and high schools.
Nell Snaidas has been praised for her “beautiful soprano
voice, melting passion” and “vocally ravishing” performances.
