The world-renowned Cleveland Orchestra is set to launch its 100th year of concerts coming up in 2017-18 after announcing details on Friday night.
“Looking toward The Cleveland Orchestra’s future, I am filled with enormous pride in the one hundred year collaboration between the Orchestra and community,” said Music Director Franz Welser-Möst. “The exceptional musicianship and dedication of this Orchestra are acclaimed anew with each passing season, here at home and around the world. Our audiences’ musical curiosity and intellect drives all of us onstage forward, to dream beyond the past, and to continue exploring new boundaries in music.”
We know the Cleveland Orchestra is great, but they continue to receive accolades both nationally and internationally: The New York Times calls the ensemble “… America’s most brilliant orchestra,” and The Wall Street Journal states that the Orchestra is “… magnificent.”
