Upcoming Events

  • CIM@CMA: Music in the Galleries

    October 5, 2016, 6:00 pm
    Cleveland Museum of Art, 11150 East Blvd., Cleveland

    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.

    Free, no tickets required. More information is available at: clevelandart.org

  • Fall Conservatory Concerto Competition

    October 13, 2016, 4:00 pm
    Kulas Hall

    Students compete for an opportunity to perform a concerto with the Cleveland Institute of Music Orchestra in Spring 2017. 

Musicians flourish when they play together and gain from the experience of others. Participation in an ensemble not only strengthens the individual's playing ability, but students improve their performance level in their school music programs.

This orchestra, conducted by Donna Jelen, is open to young string players who seek a fun and educational ensemble experience.

Little or no ensemble experience is needed to participate in the Beginning Orchestra. Students in Beginning Orchestra develop skills such as counting independently, executing orchestral bowings, watching the conductor and blending with the other musicians in the group.

Beginning Orchestra typically performs music that is Grade 1 - 2.5. Students should be comfortable performing and sight-reading in the keys of A, D, G, C and F, as well as A, E, and D Minor, and should be able to read basic rhythms in simple and compound time signatures.

Members of Beginning and Preparatory Orchestras

Absence & Tardiness Policies

Students enrolled in Beginning Orchestra are expected to participate in their school music programs. The orchestra performs at the end of each semester with the Preparatory division orchestras.

Tardiness: Latecomers are a disruption to the rehearsal. If a student arrives to a rehearsal after it has begun, they will be tuned outside of the rehearsal area and seated in the back of the section for the duration of the rehearsal.

Excessive tardiness and/or absences may result in a permanent change of seating.
