“When Dvořák came to the United States, he changed as a person and a composer, but I believe he also had a profound impact on the American music scene,” Broadway School of Music board member and Cleveland Orchestra cellist Bryan Dumm said, during a recent telephone conversation. “He was very comfortable mixing together as many stylistic elements as possible because of his experience in America.”
On Friday, May 30th beginning at 7:00 pm at Trinity Commons, the Broadway School of Music and the Arts (BSMA) presents Old World/New World: An Intimate Evening of Chamber Music. This annual benefit supports BSMA’s music and arts instruction and programming for underserved children and adults.
Hosted by WCLV 104.9 FM’s Bill O’Connell, the evening features Dvořák’s Drobnosti, Op. 75 and the Quintet in E-flat, Op. 97 as well as Mark O’Connor’s folk-inspired FC’s Jig performed by Cleveland Orchestra members Katherine Bormann, Elayna Duitman and Sae Shiragami, violins; Lisa Boyko and Lembi Veskimets, violas; and Bryan Dumm and Alan Harrell, cellos. Tickets are available on the BSMA website or by telephone at 216.641.0630. [Read more…]
