The Cleveland Orchestra

What's Happening at The Cleveland Orchestra

  • It begins softly. A single snare drum. Then, a flute with a sensual melody. Gradually each instrument joins in, one after another, until the entire orchestra is playing in unison though the work’s final tremendous climax, highlighting a concert featuring impressionistic music.

  • Light, shade, and color play an integral role in this luminously French program of Lili Boulanger, Claude Debussy, and Korean composer Unsuk Chin. Conductor Alan Gilbert discusses the music, his relationship with the orchestra, and the sacred nature of the score.

  • The Cleveland Orchestra plays Leonard Bernstein’s electrifying score live, while the 1961 re-mastered film is shown in hi-def on the big screen.

  • The Mandel Opera & Humanities Festival: The American Dream is a series of moments and opportunities for discussion created for the greater Cleveland community and headlined by concert performances of Puccini’s La Fanciulla del West (The Girl of the Golden West) conducted by Music Director Franz Welser-Möst at Severance Music Center.
