Cleveland Orchestra adds residency at Ohio’s Baldwin Wallace University Conservatory

Posted on: April 26, 2018

“Add Berea to the list of cities where the Cleveland Orchestra is occasionally in residence,” writes Zachary Lewis in Tuesday’s (4/24) Plain Dealer (Cleveland). “On Tuesday, the orchestra announced a new residency at the Baldwin Wallace University Conservatory of Music, one similar to those it conducts at Indiana University and in Miami. The project marks the orchestra’s first formal collaboration with the school…. Details of the residency are still being determined.… The project will span the 2018-19 academic year and entail various workshops, master-classes, other presentations by orchestra musicians and staff, including assistant conductor Vinay Parameswaran…. The centerpiece of the residency [is] a concert Wednesday, Jan. 16 in the school’s Gamble Auditorium. Music director Franz Welser-Möst will lead the orchestra in a program of … Mozart and Strauss…. Although the residency constitutes a new partnership, the relationship between the Cleveland Orchestra and Baldwin Wallace University is far from new. Just as some members of the orchestra traditionally teach at the Cleveland Institute of Music, so do others serve on the faculty at Baldwin Wallace Conservatory.… Still, said orchestra director Andre Gremillet, a residency is something different, a new means of reaching students and the general public alike.”
