Ke-nekt’ Chamber Music Series: Countertenor Reginald Mobley
Wednesday, February 8, 2017 • 7:30PM
Host: Mihoko Tsutsumi
Sheldon Hall Ballroom
Pre-concert Talk 7:00PM

Countertenor Reginald Mobley delights audiences with his “crystalline diction and pure, evenly produced tone” (Miami Herald), and “elaborate and inventive ornamentation” (South Florida Classical Review). His natural and preferred habitat as a countertenor soloist is within the Baroque works of Bach, Charpentier, Handel, and Purcell but is equally comfortable in repertoire of later periods, musical theatre, jazz standards, and torch songs.

Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare
Directed by Devin Brain
America’s premiere touring classical theatre company presents their diverse-cast production of this Shakespeare classic. With a presidential election year and the “Ides of March” just behind us, take time to reflect on ambition, loyalty, love of country, backroom politics, and the historical patterns we can’t stop repeating.

X: A New Play by Marcus Gardley
Directed by Ian Belknap
The assassination of Malcolm X—both the story we think we know and details seldom shared—brought vividly and lyrically to life. Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar provides the framework for an award-winning playwright to deepen our understanding of this complex, compelling figure in the tumultuous era of the 1960s.

“One of the most promising contemporary playwrights”
—Broadway World
