Keeping Music (A)Live
A late lunch with
Wednesday, Jan. 23, 2013, 1-2:30 p.m.
Do we need live music? Do we need classical music? What will it take to keep it alive? What music do classical musicians listen to when they are not making music themselves? Join members of the Cleveland Orchestra for an informal lunch and discussion of the music in our lives. This event is for music and non-music majors alike, and the conversation can range as widely as you would like!
The highly acclaimed Cleveland Orchestra (considered one of the "Big Five" of American orchestras) has performed around the world and coast to coast in the United States and is renowned for its "artistic excellence, creative programming, and community engagement." Its 2012-13 concerts include music by Berlioz, Mahler, Shostakovich, and Tchaikovsky. Founded in 1918, it has as well taken its music into the community, including Cleveland's Happy Dog bar, showcased world music in its Fridays@7 series, and introduced more than 4 million Cleveland-area schoolchildren to classical music since 1921.
It is returning for its second residency at IU's Jacob School of Music and will give a concert at 8 p.m. on January 23 at the IU Auditorium, performing Berlioz's Symphonie Fantastique and Beethoven's Violin Concerto in D Major with classical music superstar and IU alumnus Joshua Bell as the soloist.
