"Cleveland proves gracious host of 2015 League of American Orchestras conference"

The Plain Dealer (Cleveland) has published a story about the success of the League of American Orchestras' 2015 annual conference, held last week in Cleveland. The article credits a Brett Mitchell-led performance with "rounding out the portrait of a vital musical city. On Wednesday, during the conference's opening session, the Cleveland Orchestra Youth Orchestra under Brett Mitchell regaled a large crowd with the Finale of Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 4 and 'The Swan' from Saint-Saëns's The Carnival of the Animals with star cellist (and COYO alum) Alisa Weilerstein." The article features a photo of Mr. Mitchell, Ms. Weilerstein, and the orchestra at this performance. To view this photo and read the complete article, please click here.
