The Cleveland Orchestra and flutist, composer, and producer Allison Loggins-Hull announced a series of four free concerts in collaboration with Cleveland community partners. 

Loggins-Hull, the Orchestra’s Daniel R. Lewis Composer Fellow, curated the In Community Chamber Concert Series to capture the spirit of unity while highlighting Cleveland Orchestra musicians and three valued partners: H.K. School of Bandura, the Fatima Family Center, and Karamu House. She drew inspiration from the unique missions and histories of each partner for these intimate concerts. 

“The most beautiful aspect of my appointment as The Cleveland Orchestra’s Daniel R. Lewis Composer Fellow has been the opportunity to learn from and collaborate with people of varying generations and diverse communities across the city of Cleveland,” Loggins-Hull said. “Through this fellowship, my goal has been to craft music inspired by the spirit of this city and the individuals who contribute to its vibrancy. From this intention, the In Community Chamber Concert Series was born.” 

The In Community Chamber Concert Series culminates in a performance at Severance Music Center with members of The Cleveland Orchestra on May 11. It will feature music from throughout the series and a new work Loggins-Hull composed for string sextet. 

“This composition serves as a heartfelt homage, weaving together the essence of each partner and the thematic threads that have shaped our collective musical journey,” Loggins-Hull said.
