CityMusic Cleveland to make New York debut in November

Posted on: September 3, 2010

In Wednesday’s (9/1) Plain Dealer (Cleveland), Donald Rosenberg announces CityMusic Cleveland’s 2010-11 season. The group “spends most of its time performing free concerts in neighborhoods around Northeast Ohio. The professional chamber orchestra will continue to do so during its seventh season, but it also will travel to one of the country’s biggest neighborhoods, Manhattan, to make its New York debut on Friday, Nov. 12, at Lincoln Center’s Avery Fisher Hall. The ensemble has been hired to take part in ‘A Celebration of America’s Hellenic Community,’ a benefit program of music by Greek-born Canadian composer Christos Hatzis featuring internationally renowned Greek pop singer George Dalaras. The connection between the orchestra and the New York concert was made by Hatzis, whose ‘Redemption: Book I’ for string quartet and chamber orchestra CityMusic premiered in October in Cleveland with the Pacifica Quartet and guest conductor David Alan Miller. At Lincoln Center, CityMusic will give the world premiere of Hatzis’ ‘Credo’ and perform the composer’s ‘Symbol of Faith’ and ‘Telluric Dances’ (with Suzanne Lemieux, principal oboe of Symphony Nova Scotia, as soloist).”
