In Saturday’s (3/23) Plain Dealer (Cleveland), Zachary Lewis writes, “The Cleveland Orchestra announced today the details of its mid-May Gordon Square Residency, the first of what is projected to be an annual series of concerts and other events in Northeast Ohio neighborhoods. In addition to a formal program under assistant conductor James Feddeck at St. Colman Catholic Church, the orchestra plans to present an array of chamber music concerts and appearances by individual musicians at local bars, schools, restaurants and coffee shops. Notably, the group also has arranged a friendly soccer game with neighborhood children at Cleveland’s Michael J. Zone Recreation Center. On May 15, Ensemble HD, a group of musicians who’ve been playing at the Happy Dog Tavern, also will celebrate the release of a new vinyl record taped during a live performance at the bar last year.” The residency runs from May 11-17, with multiple programs most days.
