About the Event

CelloBello Celebrates Cleveland Quartet featuring A Documentary Premiere: “Notes from Behind the Iron Curtain: the Cleveland Quartet’s 1990 Soviet Tour” And Live Performances from The Weilerstein Trio & Cleveland Orchestra Cellists.

Get ready for a captivating evening of music, history, and live performances as CelloBello, the world’s leading educational website for cellists, proudly presents an exclusive event on Wednesday, November 29, 2023, at Reinberger Chamber Hall in Severance Music Center. This one-of-a-kind evening will shine a spotlight on the iconic Cleveland Quartet in a never-before-seen documentary, "Notes From Behind the Iron Curtain: Cleveland Quartet’s 1990 Soviet Tour." Following the screening, attendees will have the unique opportunity to engage in a Q&A session with Cleveland Quartet members featured in the film, Violinists Don Weilerstein, Peter Salaff, violist James Dunham and cellist Paul Katz. They will share their experiences and challenges, with some spectacular anecdotes, both poignant and humorous. The event will also feature live performances by The Weilerstein Trio with Donald, Vivian and Alisa Weilerstein and a cello ensemble featuring amazing cellists of The Cleveland Orchestra: Mark Kosower, Richard Weiss, Charles Bernard, and Bryan Dumm. CelloBello is using the occasion of this event to announce a significant upcoming expansion devoted to chamber music. Members of the Cleveland Quartet, Weilerstein Trio and Cleveland Orchestra cellists are all donating their services in support of this fundraising event.
