Incantare at Beth El
EXILE: Music of the Early Modern Jewish Diaspora
Presented by the Minnesota JCC
EXILE highlights Jewish music as it shifted and melded with traditions in early modern Europe. EXILE takes as its starting point the rich musical cultures fostered by Jews in early modern Italy and their points of contact with non-Jewish traditions. From there, we touch on the influences of Italian, German, and English music and Jewish culture, highlighting Jewish musicians, the non-Jewish composers they influenced, and composers who inspired innovations in Jewish composition. The program features instrumental and vocal works by Salamone Rossi, Claudio Monteverdi, Thomas Lupo, Mutio Effrem, and many more.
Featuring special guest and Minnesota native Clara Osowski, mezzo-soprano.
The program will be followed by a post-concert Q & A for all who are interested.
This projected is supported by a Rimon Minnesota Jewish Arts Council Grant.
Incantare is committed to providing a safe and comfortable experience for all musicians and audience members, and we are working with our venues and presenters to make sure this happens. While the situation will continue to evolve throughout the season, our concert at Beth El Synagogue will require attendees to be vaccinated, with masks worn. Our artists will also be vaccinated and tested prior to the event for the safety and comfort of our audience members, performers, and venue staff. The generous venue size will allow for physical distancing between audience members and the musicians.
