Talk about heightened anticipation. With just over a month to go until the first program, ChamberFest Cleveland has at last released the details of its 2015 series.
It was worth the wait. Titled “Crossing Borders,” the fourth edition of the summer chamber music festival explores the notion of travel, showcasing works and performers influenced by journeys to distant lands and artistic realms. It’s also quite substantial, spanning 10 concerts from June 17 to July 1.
Like the music itself, the festival led by Franklin Cohen, principal clarinetist of the Cleveland Orchestra, and his daughter Diana Cohen, concertmaster of the Calgary Philharmonic, will be nomadic in 2015. Over the course of the series, concerts will be held at Spaces Gallery, Dunham Tavern, Harkness Chapel, the Wine Spot, Blackstone Organ House, and the Cleveland Institute of Music. See the schedule below for details.
