Music and the Spoken Word | The Power of the Lute

Music and the Spoken Word | The Power of the Lute

Join us for an evening of delightful and powerful lute music performed by Theodore Cheek, the Avant Bard. He will present a program of music ranging from Rome to Elizabethan London and will be joined by readers presenting poetic pieces on music by Shakespeare and other contemporary poets.

Lutenist Theodore Cheek was a fan favorite at last September’s Lewes Public Library Shakespeare Festival. He appears in recital tours and as a soloist with ensembles across the United States, in Europe, and in the Caribbean. He performs regularly in the Philadelphia area with the Philadelphia Choral Arts Society, the Penn Collegium Musicum, and the Haverford Chamber Singers.  He is also a staple in the Baroque opera scene as he has appeared in a number of productions with the Temple Monteverdi Project, the Amherst Early Music Festival, and the Peabody Chamber Opera.

Registration is requested. Sign up online, by calling the library at 302-645-2733, or stop by the Circulation Desk.

This program is co-sponsored by the Shakespeare Festival, a program of the Lewes Public Library, which seeks to provide the community with experiences that foster the understanding of Shakespeare and the world in which he lived and wrote. This lecture is funded by a grant from the Delaware Humanities, a state program of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
