Cleveland Classical 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. Music Director Brett Mitchell discussed the orchestra's performances of Adam Schoenberg's Finding Rothko, Erich Korngold's Violin Concerto, and Rachmaninoff's Symphonic Dances:

“This is going to be a very special concert,” Brett Mitchell said during a telephone conversation. “These are all magnificent but challenging pieces, but with no surprise the orchestra has risen to the occasion admirably.”
