Seattle Historical Arts for Kids

Shulamit Kleinerman, Renaissance violin
Jonathan Oddie, harpsichord

The SHAK Early Music Youth Academy brings gorgeous music of Salamone Rossi to life in the context of his vibrant yet troubling times. This prolific and inventive early-17th-century Italian composer enjoyed a fascinating circle of collaborators, including the philosopher-poet Sara Copia, the humanist rabbi Leon Modena, and Rossi’s own sister, the opera singer Madama Europa.

By day, Rossi commuted to work in the household of Mantua’s Gonzaga dukes, composing music for their court ceremonies and performing in their wedding festivities; at night, he and all of the city’s Jewish population were required by law to return behind the walls of the Jewish ghetto.

Directed by Shulamit Kleinerman on the Renaissance violin, the Early Music Youth Academy is a program of Seattle Historical Arts for Kids. This instrumental ensemble of skilled teen players on violins, violas da gamba, lute, and harp is joined by harpsichordist Jonathan Oddie and by guest teen singers who bring to life Rossi’s courtly Italian songs and his innovative sacred music in Hebrew.

All ages are welcome at this one hour concert, though its intricate music and historical subject matter may best appeal to adults and older children.

Join us for tea and cookies afterward!

Suggested free-will donation: $10-$15 online in advance or cash/check at the door. Pay as able.
