Classical Revolution Cleveland performs Jan. 21 at Heights Arts
Heights Arts is rolling out a robust series of free music programs in 2016, including a new series of master classes for young musicians and performances of classical music (both new and traditional) in the gallery. Hear the nonprofit art organization's first community concert of 2016 in the gallery on Thursday, Jan. 21, when Classical Revolution Cleveland performs American classics by George Gershwin, Aaron Copland and Philip Glass, plus excepts from the "American" quartet by Antonín Dvorák.
Part of a growing international movement that is dedicated to bringing classical music to the people, Cleveland's own Classical Revolution project began in 2009. It is a loosely bound collective of classically trained, professional musicians, including violinists Ariel Clayton Karas and Lisa Kim, violist Julian Machala and cellist Andris Koh.
Classical Revolution Cleveland currently gives monthly performances at the Happy Dog on Detroit Avenue, as well as regular pop-up performances in other non-traditional venues. It is featured frequently on Cleveland’s classical music and NPR radio stations.
Seating is limited; the community is encouraged to come early and view the exhibition Remade in Cleveland as well. More information on Heights Arts community music programming is available at www.heightsarts.org.
