Classical Notes: June 7, 2006 Archive

Summer Music, Cont'd.

Posted at 8:11 AM on June 7, 2006 by Rex Levang (1 Comments)

Some more upcoming events: North Star Opera does Gilbert and Sullivan’s Iolanthe, which is one of those stories à la Little Mermaid, about who gets to get married to whom. In Northfield next month, there are overlapping conventions, devoted to the viola da gamba and to the vintage wind band. And in Duluth, the Lake Superior Chamber Orchestra takes to the stage at UMD, with, among other things, a cell phone concerto.

No word on whether:

Iolanthe will get an updated treatment in view of recent public debates

The viola da gamba folks and the brass band folks will join forces for a unique extravaganza

The cell phone concerto will include audience participation.
