Join ChamberFest Cleveland for this joyous, no-holds-barred celebration of Franklin Cohen as he approaches a border crossing of his own. After serving for nearly 40 years as the principal clarinetist of The Cleveland Orchestra, Frank will embark upon exciting new journeys as he bids farewell to the orchestra. This not-to-be-missed clarinet extravaganza features a virtuosic rendition of Mozart’s ebullient Clarinet Concerto with our own all-star orchestra. A special reception will be held after the performance at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History in University Circle.
