    The popular series of monthly concerts in the galleries featuring young artists from the Cleveland Institute of Music and the joint program with Case Western Reserve University’s early and baroque music programs enters its fifth season. Outstanding conservatory musicians present mixed programs of chamber music amid the museum’s collections for a unique and intimate experience—concerts regularly feature instruments from the museum’s keyboard collection.

    From standard repertoire to unknown gems, these early-evening, hour-long performances are a delightful after-work encounter or the start of a night out. Programs announced the week of the performance.

School's out for the summer but the music goes on at CIM

Thursday, May 29 at 7:30pm in Mixon Hall

Tomer Gewirtzman, pianoAward-winning Israeli musicians the Ariel String Quartet and pianist Tomer Gewirtzman come together for a night of Bach, Bloch, Beethoven and Schumann.

Presented by  America-Israel Cultural Foundation, The Jewish Federation’s Cleveland Israel Arts Connection and CIM, the concert will feature a special performance of “Baal Shem Suite,” which was composed by CIM’s first musical director Ernest Bloch and will be played on a violin once owned and played by the composer.

Saturday, June 7 — A Special Event

Julien Labro, accordion and bandoneonThe head of CIM’s collaborative piano department takes the music “on the road,” teaming up with guest artist Julien Labro (accordion/bandoneón) for Time to Tango, presented by the Women’s Committee of CIM at the Mayfield Sand Ridge Club in South Euclid.

The benefit event includes cocktails, dinner and a concert by the duo, who will perform tango music. The bandoneón, which Labro will be playing, is an essential instrument in most tango ensembles and is widely considered a symbol and sound of the tango.
