Bach as part of the Wednesday Noon Organ Concert series — a freewill offering will be taken up. Or you can make your way to the Butler Institute of American Art in Youngstown for YSU’s Music at Noon series, this week featuring faculty members Kivie Cahn-Lipman (cello) and Cicilia Yudha (piano). It’s free.
And at 7:30 pm, modern Italian folk group Alla Boara will celebrate the release of their second album with a concert at the Cleveland Museum of Art’s Gartner Auditorium. The vision of drummer and composer Anthony Taddeo, Alla Boara features vocalist Amanda Powell, guitarist Dan Bruce, trumpeter Tommy Lehman, bassist Ian Kinnaman, and accordionist and keyboardist Clay Colley — plus tonight’s special guests, Patrick Graney on percussion and Caitlin Hedge on violin.
