Lake Erie College Adjunct Professor to Present “Roman Voices” Recital(Painesville, Ohio) – Lake Erie College adjunct music professor Richard Kolb will present "Roman Voices: Arias and Cantatas from 17th Century Rome” on Monday, October 15 at 2:15 p.m. in the Morley Music Building. The recital will feature music by leading composers Antonio Francesco Tenaglia and Carlo Caproli.
In this recital, Kolb, a theorbo and archlute (tenor) will sing with Tracy Cowart, a well known mezzo-soprano who specializes in music of the Baroque period.
Praised by The New York Times as the "real attraction” with a voice that is "light and lithe,” Cowart has performed with ensembles including Apollo’s Fire, Exsultemus, La Donna Musicale, the Newberry Consort, Opera Lafayette, Three Notch’d Road and the Washington Bach Consort. Cowart is currently pursuing a doctorate of musical arts degree in historical performance practice at Case Western Reserve.
Kolb has performed with Baroque orchestras, opera companies and chamber ensembles throughout North America and Europe. He has taught at the University of Toronto, the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto and Case Western Reserve University. His dissertation research led him to discover and edit unknown works by prominent 17th century Roman composers.
The recital is free and open to the community. For more information, contact Richard Kolb at firstname.lastname@example.org.
