Online sales for this concert are now closed. Please note that this concert is very close to selling out. Any remaining tickets will be sold at the door of the concert location (Plymouth Church UCC, 2860 Coventry Rd., Shaker Heights) prior to the concert.
Due to the softer nature of the lute, this concert will be held in the smaller, intimate Herr Chapel (rather than the larger sanctuary) at Plymouth Church. The last time we presented Paul O’Dette in the chapel the concert sold out, so advance tickets are recommended. Tickets will be available at the door for this event, unless otherwise noted. Please be sure to check this page for updates.
Paul O’Dette will perform on a 10-course lute (a lute with 10 pairs of strings) in a program which explores the transition from Renaissance to Baroque, combining the virtuosity of Renaissance Italian and English music with the elegance and sonority of the early French Baroque style.
Paul O’Dette led the revival of Renaissance and Baroque lute playing in the 1970’s and still stands at the top of the growing early music scene. His more than 100 recordings, 2 Grammys, impressive conducting experience, and 4 decades at the Eastman School of Music are part of a musical legacy beyond compare.
