A Concert of Medieval Music

A Concert of Medieval Music
Wednesday, July 7, 7:30 P.M.

The Rogue Theatre 
at The Historic Y, 300 E. University

Admission: Pay-What-You-Will

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

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.

Act Without Words

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.

 

The Rogue Theatre’s mission is to create the highest quality theatre possible;
challenging, stretching, and invigorating our community.

We emphasize

LANGUAGE by placing primary value on quality language and literature;
ENSEMBLE by developing performers who seek continuous improvement and creating an academy for training ourselves and emerging theatre artists;
CHALLENGING IDEAS by presenting plays which offer complex and provocative points of view
related to important social, political, and personal issues.
