A Concert of Medieval Music
Wednesday, July 7, 7:30 P.M.
The Rogue Theatre
at The Historic Y, 300 E. University
Box office opens one hour before curtain
No advance reservations
In anticipation of next season's production of Boccaccio's "Decameron",
the Rogue Theatre will present a light-hearted evening of 14th century
Italian and French vocal and instrumental music. Internationally
renowned lutenist Crawford Young joins Rogue musician and singer Harlan
Hokin for the Rogue's first concert. Both Harlan and Crawford are
well-known and seasoned practitioners of medieval and renaissance music.
Our program will consist of pieces that would have been familiar to the
characters in the Decameron. Rogue friend and collaborator Patrick
Baliani is in the midst of creating a new translation and dramatization
of Boccaccio's "Decameron" that will be the Rogue's fifth production of
the 2010-11 season.
Crawford Young graduated from New England Conservatory and studied
medieval music with Thomas Binkley prior to joining the medieval quartet
Sequentia in Cologne. Young is director and founder of two prominent
medieval ensembles, Boston-based Project Ars Nova and the Ferrara
Ensemble of Basel, which won a Diapason d'Or de l'Annee and was a
finalist for Gramophone's Early Music Recording of the Year. Since 1982
Young has taught lute and Interpretation and Performance Practice at the
Schola Cantorum in Basel.
Harlan Hokin is well known to Rogue audiences. He has performed
extensively as a solo singer and director with many international early
music ensembles including Sequentia and P.A.N., and did a stint with the
Oregon Shakespeare Festival somewhere in the mists of history. He earned
a doctorate in historical performance practice from Stanford, and has
taught at Stanford and UC Santa Cruz. Harlan is an active workshop
teacher and writer on topics of interest to singers and early music
performers, and teaches music theory and literature at Pima Community
College. He has served the Rogue as music
director since its inception, and acted as vocal director for Arizona
Onstage's production of Assassins. He is currently serving on the Board
of Directors of the Arizona Early Music Society, and is the father of
two nearly perfect former children. Harlan was a student at the Schola
Cantorum (where Crawford now teaches) many long moons ago.
Carolyn Hokin, singer, as well as various Rogue actors, will join
Crawford and Harlan for this concert.
