“Classical Cabaret” Brings Musical Excitement to Chagrin Valley, March 29th
The innovative Chagrin Valley concert group M.U.S.i.C. – Stars in the Classics has announced
the lineup for its latest Classical Cabaret, to be held at Orange Village Hall, 4600 Lander
Road, Sunday March 29, 2015, at 3:30 P.M. Stars include international virtuosos Eleanor Rufheizen (Israel), clarinet, Giovanni Bertoni (Italy), clarinet, Chloe Thominet (France) viola, Filip Lazovski (Macedonia), violin, and a host of stars from top conservatories.
They will be performing works by Weil, Dvorak, Prokofiev, Schuloff, Stravinsky and Brahms in the distinctive, fast-moving format pioneered by the “Classical Cabaret” series.
Classical Cabaret gives music fans at all levels a new way to appreciate skilled young musicians and singers in unusual repertoire, says Jodi Kanter, artistic director of M.U.S.i.C. (Musical Upcoming Stars in the Classics).
Classical Cabaret mixes lively performances with serious music, with the opportunity to enjoy great food and drink and meet new friends.
The March 29th event at Orange Village Hall will be M.U.S.i.C’s tenth Classical Cabaret – a series that has in the past presented stars like clarinetist Dmitri Ashkenazy, guitarist Jason Vieux, accordion superstar Julian Labro, soprano Jung Oh, and members of the Cleveland Orchestra. The audience can enjoy food, drink and socializing before and after the concert.
“We’re especially thrilled to be holding this Classical Cabaret at the Orange Village Hall,” says Kanter. There’s little separation between audiences and musicians in the beautiful, post-modern rotunda, and the acoustics are truly remarkable.
Classical Cabaret No. 10 also features Tara Lynn Ramsey, and William Overcash, violins;
Nellie Freed, viola; Aaron Wolff, cello; Kristen Perry, oboe; Henry Samuels and Casey Karr, double bass; Amber Fasquelle, mezzo-soprano; pianist Andrew Rosenblum; and harpist Celia van den Bogert.
