Burning River Baroque performs Suppressed Voices: Music of the Banished
7:30 PM - 9:00 PM
Cleveland-based early-music ensemble Burning River Baroque will return to Lakewood this March with a performance of their new program Suppressed Voices: Music of the Banished. You can see this compelling program on Friday, March 23 in the chapel of the Lakewood Congregational Church, beginning at 7:30 pm.

Music has long offered a space for outsiders to find a voice, and classical composers have often been at the forefront of political and social change. From the character of Agrippina, a political exile in G.F. Handel’s cantata, to composers like Johann Rosenmüller, Evaristo Felice dall’Abaco, and Peter Philips who were forced to flee their homelands for various social, political, and religious reasons, this program will challenge audiences’ expectations and highlight the accomplishments of those who overcame great adversity. Performers will include co-directors Malina Rauschenfels (soprano), Paula Maust (harpsichord) and guest artists Sarah Elizabeth Cranor (baroque violin), Reynaldo Patiño (baroque violin), and Jessica Korotkin (baroque cello). Burning River Baroque will be partnering with the Refugee Services Collaborative of Greater Cleveland for this concert.
Lakewood Congregational Church (Chapel), 1375 West Clifton Blvd.
