SERIES DESCRIPTION

Music Study Group classes explore music from the Orchestra's upcoming subscription concerts through lively presentations and listening activities. Participants, ranging from beginners to seasoned listeners, learn about the lives and musical styles of composers in addition to the cultural and historical context of the music, while also developing keen listening skills.

COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIPS

Music Study Groups are presented by The Cleveland Orchestra in partnership with Cuyahoga County Public Library (at four of their branches) and in partnership with Cleveland Heights-University Heights Public Library and St. Paul's Episcopal Church of Cleveland Heights, with additional support from the Women's Committee of The Cleveland Orchestra.

The Cleveland Orchestra's partnership with Cuyahoga County Public Library extends to other Orchestra programs presented at their library branches, including Musical Rainbows on the Road for preschoolers, chamber music concerts by Cleveland Orchestra Youth Orchestra members, and interactive hands-on Family Workshops (leading up to the Orchestra's annual Public Square summer concert), where young people explore orchestral instruments, practice singing the National Anthem, and learn more about the music featured on the Public Square concert.
