Help Those Affected
This concert is made possible through the support of the Musical Arts Association, Kulas Foundation, and the John P. Murphy Foundation. All of the musicians involved are donating their time.
Musicians of The Cleveland Orchestra, and students from the Cleveland Institute of Music, Oberlin Conservatory of Music, and Credo Music join together in a benefit concert, Help After Harvey: A Benefit Concert for the American Red Cross, to support the work of the American Red Cross for those affected by Hurricane Harvey.
James Feddeck, former assistant conductor of The Cleveland Orchestra and Oberlin Conservatory alumnus, conducts. For more information on James Feddeck visit https://imgartists.com/roster/james-feddeck/.
The concert centers on the idea that we are stronger when we join together, with this grouping of musicians of the greater Cleveland community serving as a tangible model of that truth. Just as musicians from Cleveland’s musical institutions are coming together to form a dynamic orchestra, the people of Cleveland will come together to show support for those affected by Hurricane Harvey.
