It's good to see some interesting variety mixed in with the typical fire-hose of Mozart and Beethoven. Hopefully there will be no riots during Rite of Spring. Maybe I'll spring for some tickets this year. For budget-conscious folks who want to see an excellent orchestra perform, check out the CIM orchestra, including several yearly concerts at Severance.

Default New Cleveland Orchestra assistant director named

<< The Cleveland Orchestra announced today the appointment of Vinay Parameswaran as Assistant Conductor of The Cleveland Orchestra and Music Director of the Cleveland Orchestra Youth Orchestra.>>

https://www.clevelandorchestra.com/N...-parameswaran/

Parameswaran will replace Brett Mitchell, who has been appointed the new music director of the Colorado Symphony.

Persons wishing to see Severance Hall and enjoy very good classical music certainly should not pass up an opportunity to hear the Cleveland Orchestra Youth Orchestra.

Read, and hear, Brett Mitchell's praise for the COYO in this Ideastream interview.

<<But arguably his most important role during this time has been as mentor to student musicians. "Ninety-five percent of cities in this country would kill to have a professional orchestra that plays as well as COYO. They blow me away every single weekend. It's very inspiring to me as now somebody who can be a mentor to them," Mitchell said.


COYO manager Lauren Generette says Mitchell is an inspiration to the young musicians.
"They often jot down quotes during rehearsal of things they want to remember. He does make it fun and memorable for them at the same time I think," Generette said.>>

Here's a nice review in the Times of what was, by all account, a fascinating, innovative, and mesmerizing performance of Debussy's opera:

Review: Debussy’s ‘Pelléas,’ but This Time All Boxed In


From my soapbox:
It's sad that more NEOhians don't realize what a world-class orchestral music scene we have in Cleveland.

I doubt there are many NE Ohioans who "don't realize" it... it's more likely that they're just not into it.

I would have to disagree ... I'm not sure how you would realize it if you are not "into it" ... there certainly is virtually no media coverage of the arts in any widely-consumed NEO media outlets. I understand that more people care about the basketballs bouncing that the arts - that's a reality that is neither objectively good nor bad.

The art museums, Cleveland Orchestra and the theater are well covered at cleveland.com.

The WVIZ "Applause" program, and especially the Applause programs on WCLE, offer much information for those interested in the Cleveland arts.

Cleveland Scene also well covers the arts.

Cleveland Scene

The Donovan Live WKYC TV show at 7 p.m. on weekdays often has segments on the arts, especially Broadway national tours at PlayhouseSquare from memory.

Default At the Movies -- West Side Story

Leonard Bernstein's famous "West Side Story" score will be showcased starting this Thursday with four performances at Severance Hall with a Cleveland Orchestra live performance accompanying a re-mastered HD version of the movie providing the original vocals and dialogs.

https://www.clevelandorchestra.com/1...certs/week-23/

The 3-hour live performance actually will be a great challenge, and a memorable event for fans of Broadway musical films:

<<
It's a good thing he's prepared. Performing "West Side Story" this way, live and in sync with the film, is a task far more complicated than it would be with many other films, or conducting a traditional performance in concert or as part of a theater production.


The challenge, in this case, is the film itself. Long before anyone could have dreamed of an orchestra performing the film score live, the editors of "West Side Story" spliced together tidbits from any number of recorded takes, all of which differ slightly in terms of tempo.


Following along, therefore, becomes something of a "high-wire act," Mitchell explained. "You've got to hit every single one of those transitions live. You really don't have any choice...."


Mitchell therefore knows of what he speaks when he predicts that this account of "West Side Story," his last scheduled appearance as a member of the Cleveland Orchestra, will be unlike any other he's seen or been a part of.
"This is a really special way to experience 'West Side Story,' " Mitchell said. "When you get to hear this score with this orchestra, it's really going to highlight Bernstein's music in a way other versions simply cannot do."

It's sad if, in fact, it's more likely that they're just not into it.
