The League of American Orchestras has announced that internationally renowned cellist Alisa Weilerstein will join the Cleveland Orchestra Youth Orchestra and music director Brett Mitchell for a special performance at the opening session of their annual conference later this month in Cleveland.
An alumna of COYO, Ms. Weilerstein will open the event with a performance of The Swan by Camille Saint-Saëns, accompanied by Mr. Mitchell and the orchestra. She will then return to COYO's cello section for the first time in over twenty years for a performance of the finale of Tchaikovsky's Fourth Symphony, one of four works the orchestra will play on their four-city tour of China in June 2015.
This performance is free to all conference attendees, and will take place on Wednesday, May 27 at 1:30 p.m. in the Music Hall at the Cleveland Public Auditorium. For more information, please click here.
