Beethoven Lives Upstairs

The Cleveland Orchestra
Vinay Parameswaran, conductor
with Classical Kids Live!
featuring Andrew Redlawsk (as Christoph)
and Thad Avery (as Christoph's Uncle)
and with Cleveland Orchdestra musicians
Peter Otto (violin) and Joela Jones (piano)


An eccentric boarder arrives, and turns the life of ten-year-old Christoph upside down! But his feelings for this “Mr. Beethoven” change from anger to admiration as he comes to understand the beauty of his music — and the torment of his deafness. The whole family will love this touching, fun concert — it’s a perfect introduction to the Orchestra featuring more than 20 of this universally-loved composer’s most famous works. 

An hour of free pre-concert activities begins at 2 p.m.

The Cleveland Orchestra's Family Concert Series

Sato Center for Suzuki Studies

in the Bogomolny-Kozerefski Grand Foyer
     At the heart of Suzuki Studies at CIM is the strong conviction that “every child has unlimited potential.”  This method, developed by Dr. Shinichi Suzuki in the 1940s, was inspired by how children learn language in early childhood —through communication skills shared between parent and child.  In focusing this same process on learning music, Dr. Suzuki’s goal was not simply to develop professional musicians, but to help grow every child’s character through the study of music.
