Preview: "The Cleveland Orchestra Youth Orchestra shines at Severance Hall"

Cool Cleveland has published a preview of the final concert of the Cleveland Orchestra Youth Orchestra's 30th season, presented this Sunday, May 8 at 3 p.m. at Severance Hall.

For 30 seasons, the Cleveland Orchestra Youth Orchestra has been giving young players in grades 6-12 from across the region who are serious about their music the opportunity to work with other high-caliber players and learn to perform with them in an orchestral setting.

One of the best perks is that they get to perform on the stage at Severance Hall where, for the evening, they can imagine what it would be like to be in the Cleveland Orchestra. For their next performance, they’ll play Adam Schoenberg’s “Finding Rothko,” Erik Wolfgang Korngold’s Violin Concerto featuring 18-year-old Jieming Tang, and Sergei Rachmaninoff’s Symphonic Dances. COYO music director Brett Mitchell conducts. Tickets are $15.
