  • 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

The Youth String Camerata, led by conductor Marcia Ferritto, provides an opportunity for advanced students to experience the excitement and challenge of rehearsing and performing music in the intimate setting of a chamber ensemble. The group is limited in size for this purpose.

The students are introduced to the study and performance of works of varying styles. Each piece of music draws on the entire spectrum of skill of the individual player and of the group as a whole.
