    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.

He is on the faculty of the Cleveland Institute of Music and has presented recitals and master classes at major conservatories in the United States, Europe, Japan and South America. A Bach Trombone Artist, Mr. La Rosa recently worked with the Conn-Selmer company to develop a new Bach Artisan Trombone with the Massimo La Rosa (MLR-03) Valve.

Born in Palermo, Italy, Mr. La Rosa grew up in Belmonte Mezzagno, a small town near Palermo. He attended the Conservatory of Music in Palermo where he studied with Filippo Bonanno. Mr. La Rosa enjoys playing for social causes and has recently performed several benefit recitals in collaboration with the Italian Consulate in Cleveland and Detroit that have raised thousands of dollars to benefit the ANFE Light of Life Foundation, an organization that provides financial assistance and treatment for children with retinal disorders.
