Clevelanders in Miami

Thursday, September 10, 2009 ·

Thirteen musicians from The Cleveland Orchestra are in Miami this week, coaching members of the New World Symphony, America’s Orchestral Academy. The professionals are giving private lessons, leading sectional rehearsals, and offering their expertise on repertoire such as Bruckner’s Symphony No. 4, the Sibelius Symphony No. 1, and Wagner’s Overture to Tannhäuser.

Visiting Cleveland musicians are: John Clouser (bassoon), Franklin Cohen (clarinet), Maximilian Dimoff (bass), Mary Kay Fink (piccolo), Richard King (horn), Peter Otto (violin), Jeffrey Rathbun (oboe), Stephen Rose (violin), Michael Sachs (trumpet), Richard Stout (euphonium and bass trumpet), Robert Vernon (viola), Richard Weiss (cello), and Paul Yancich (timpani).

The New World Symphony was established to prepare outstanding graduates of music programs for leadership roles in orchestras and ensembles. More than 1,000 musicians vie for approximately 35 fellowships awarded each year to those entering the three-year training program. This week’s visit expands on the Cleveland Orchestra’s Miami Residency, during which the entire Orchestra performs a series of concerts at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County. In addition to these performances, The Cleveland Orchestra serves a variety of roles in Miami-Dade including masterclasses with University of Miami Frost School of Music students and curriculum-linked education concerts for Miami-Dade County Public Schools students, plus other community programs.

In the 2009-10 season, the Orchestra will perform subscription concerts in Miami on January 22 and 23, January 29 and 30, and March 26 and 27, 2010; as well as Education and Family concerts on March 25 and 27, 2010.
