Dame Emma Kirkby, one of the world’s greatest and most influential sopranos and a driving force of the “early music revival” will give a masterclass for vocal students from the Case Western Reserve University’s Historical Performance Practice program. 

Members of the community are invited to the performance Saturday, Nov. 5, at 11:30 a.m. at Harkness Chapel.

Focusing on 17th century English song, works performed will include Dowland, Purcell, Blow and Ives.
