Case Western Reserve University becomes the epicenter of the lute universe Sunday, June 24, to Friday, June 29 as the campus hosts the Lute Society of America’s 2012 Summer Seminar. Lute players and vocalists from around the world will converge on Cleveland to provide classes and performances featuring this historic instrument. The open public sessions include afternoon and evening concerts in Harkness Chapel, 11200 Bellflower Road. The forerunner to the classical guitar, the lute still maintains its own strong following of individuals eager to preserve and promote the once-ubiquitous instrument and its extensive song list. Ross Duffin, Fynette H. Kulas Professor of Music and Interim Chair of the Department of Music, explains that the lute produces a soft textural and pastoral sound that invites intensive listening. It gained widespread popularity before the harpsichord or the modern piano.
