CLEVELAND, Ohio – Wine. Visual art. Human beings. These things can take decades to develop and be appreciated.
ChamberFest Cleveland, on the other hand? It’s only five summers old but already has emerged as one of the region’s richest cultural assets.
Case in point: the festival’s 2016 season. Titled “Tales and Legends,” the just-announced lineup for this summer reflects the depth, creativity, and ambition of a mature institution.
“It’s amazing how much material there really is,” said ChamberFest co-founder Diana Cohen of the 2016 theme. Cohen founded the festival along with her father, clarinetist Franklin Cohen. “That idea of stories? There’s a lot there.”
