CIM students join in relief efforts after Hurricane Harvey
Cleveland Institute of Music students join musicians of The Cleveland Orchestra, Oberlin Conservatory of Music and Credo Music to put on 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 will conduct the program, which includes Copland's Fanfare for the Common Man, Barber's Adagio for Strings and Stravinsky's Firebird Suite (1919).
The concert will center 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 will come together to form a dynamic orchestra, the people of Cleveland will come together to show support for those affected by Hurricane Harvey.
Tickets are $20 ($10 for students), available through the Severance Hall Ticket Office online, by phone at 216-231-1111 or 800-686-1141 or in person. Donations can be made through the Northeast Ohio Red Cross.
100% of the ticket price will benefit the American Red Cross’s relief efforts for Hurricane Harvey.
This concert is made possible through the support of the Musical Arts Association, the Kulas Foundation and the John P. Murphy Foundation. All of the musicians involved are donating their time.
