TRAVELING BAND: CityMusic Cleveland brings music to the masses
Cleveland Scene: March 18-19, 2005
If people won’t go to a classical concert, take the concert to them. That’s been CityMusic Cleveland‘s mantra since last July, when the 24-piece orchestra took its shows on the road for those who’d never heard Bach or Beethoven live. “People watch TV with 300 channels,” notes the orchestra’s executive director, Eugenia Strauss. “You go to the movies. You go to the ballgame. They’re wonderful things to do, but we say, ‘You know more about classical music than you thought.’” For its spring-themed concerts this weekend, the group is performing Copland’s Appalachian Spring, Haydn’s Violin Concerto #1 in C Major, and Schubert’s Symphony #4 in B-Flat Major. “Schubert’s music has been used in more than 200 movies,” observes Strauss. CityMusic Cleveland performs at 2 p.m. Friday at Judson Manor, 1890 East 107th Street; 8 p.m. Friday at the United Methodist Church, 34201 Eddy Road in Willoughby Hills; and 8 p.m. Saturday at the Shrine Church of St. Stanislaus, 3649 East 65th Street. Admission is free; call 216-321-8273. — Cris Glaser

No complaints, in fact only praise, for the actual performances, led by music director Avner Dorman Wednesday evening. About the venue, however, the auditorium at Fairmount Temple, a few […]
