On August 10, the Cleveland Orchestra will perform the second of three Friday evening concerts as part of its Summers@Severance series, with Vasily Petrenko leading Elgar’s tone poem In the South and Bartók’s Concerto for Orchestra. The series began on July 27 with Herbert Blomstedt conducting Brahms’s Symphony No. 4, and will conclude on August 24 with Jonathan Cohen making his Cleveland Orchestra debut leading Handel’s Occasional Oratorio Overture, Haydn’s Piano Concerto No. 11 with soloist Kristian Bezuidenhout, and Mozart’s Symphony No. 25. Summers@Severance, in its fifth year, features performances of well-known classical works, with early start times and pre- and post-concert opportunities to socialize. The Front Terrace of Severance Hall offers food and drinks before and after the concerts, with “happy hour” drink prices before each concert. The series is in addition to the Cleveland Orchestra’s regular summer season of concerts at the Blossom Festival in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio.
