The University of Indianapolis presents Friday Nights at the Keyboard: “Handel and His Spanish Contemporaries,” a night of classical music, Friday September 25. The University of Indianapolis maintains its reputation for excellence among the largest colleges in Indiana, by celebrating the 250th anniversary of George Frideric Handel’s death. Once again they contribute an exciting night of live performance to the Indianapolis music scene.
Friday Nights at the Keyboard “Handel and His Spanish Contemporaries” is free and open to all Indianapolis people. Come and listen as a quartet of talented professors perform one of Handel’s amorous cantatas for solo voice and Continuo as well as his G-minor Suite for harpsichord. The evening is completed by the work of Handel’s contemporaries: Domenico Scarlatti Sonatas at the portative organ and a Concerto for organ and harpsichord by Antonio Soler.
Thomas Gerber on harpsichord pairs with Marko Petricic on the organ. Mitzi Westra an amazing mezzo-soprano and Dennis McCafferty playing the cello round out the ensemble nicely. Do not miss your opportunity to hear these classics performed by musicians who love Handel. Once again the University of Indianapolis makes significant contributions of Indianapolis education and to Indianapolis arts.
Make an evening of it by visiting any of many great Indianapolis restaurants and Indianapolis bars in the nearby Indianapolis downtown. This is a great way to spend a Friday night, with something to do in Indianapolis that is totally free, you will have plenty of dough left over to treat yourself to a night out in the Circle City.
Friday Night at the Keyboard: “Handel and His Spanish Contemporaries” begins at 7:30 pm and will performed in the Ruth Lilly Performance Hall of the Christel DeHaan Fine Arts Center.
