In Ohio, Oberlin Conservatory faculty, students, and alumni will join musicians from the Baroque orchestra Apollo’s Fire on May 11 to perform a benefit concert for the liver-transplant program at the Cleveland Clinic. The concert, to be held at the Gartner Auditorium at the Cleveland Museum of Art, was organized by Michael Lynn, a professor of recorder and Baroque flute at Oberlin and a regular performer with Apollo’s Fire, the Oberlin Baroque Ensemble, and the Irish band Turn the Corner. Lynn received a liver transplant from the Cleveland Clinic last fall. In addition to works by Telemann and Handel, the concert program will include Le tableau de l’opération de la taille—loosely translated as “Bladder-Stone Operation,” which features detailed annotations of the procedure as represented by the music—from Marin Marais’s fifth book of pieces for viola da gamba in 1725.
