CityMusic Cleveland is a chamber orchestra that presents free concerts in a variety of Cleveland neighborhoods. Now celebrating its 15th anniversary season, the orchestra was founded in 2004 with the mission of developing audiences and building communities through the arts. CityMusic accomplishes this by presenting the finest quality performances of classical repertoire, eliminating the twin barriers of high ticket prices and unfamiliar venues, and working with neighborhood leaders to enrich the cultural offerings of their communities. CityMusic frequently tackles social issues through provoking and innovative concert-projects. The orchestra performs four concerts per season and this year will feature acclaimed soloists Tessa Lark, Frank Rosenwein, Sayaka Shoji and Amit Peled. Music Director Avner Dorman leads the orchestra, and this season has been commissioned to write a new violin concerto in celebration of CityMusic’s 15th Anniversary.
