Please join us as the wonder and magic of Season Four unfolds. “Crossing Borders,” this year’s theme, explores the works of classical composers whose creative lives were profoundly influenced by the aesthetic and geographic worlds they experienced and traveled. Our adventure begins by exploring chamber music of the masters as they sought personal expression through their journeys.
From river cruises to ocean crossings and beyond, our chosen musical offerings reveal the myriad of influences that have shaped the hearts and minds of these great composers both past and present in their search for expression. “Crossing Borders” celebrates this phenomenon by starting its musical journey with a trip down the Danube River and ends with a salute to America and the influence our country has had on others.
This year the program has expanded to ten included concerts, with a handful of festive parties and gatherings allowing ample opportunity to mingle with musicians and make new friends. “AND we’re excited to present a very special concert entitled “FRANK!”, a celebration of the many years of joyful music-making that has been my (Frank’s) life in Cleveland.” Joined by an all-star orchestra, we can’t wait to share this memorable evening with all of you! As always, we graciously invite you into our “Chamberhood” to join us and our ever-growing family of friends and musicians who are ChamberFest Cleveland.
