The Cleveland Orchestra

1213 Welcome


Dear Families,     Welcome to Severance Hall and the 42nd season of Cleveland Orchestra Family Concerts! Whether this is your first time or you are a return visitor, we know you’ll enjoy these entertaining and engaging orchestra concerts in awesome Severance Hall. The first Family Concerts were performed in 1970 and were originally called “Key Concerts” because they “opened the door” to classical music for young people and families.   

   Our season begins with Halloween Spooktacular III on October 28, a new Family Concert tradition. Our program of “Tales and Terrors” features some of the most deliciously spooky music ever composed — just right for little ghouls and goblins! The afternoon starts with Halloween-themed pre-concert activities including a Costume Contest, the Thriller Dancers, and Instrument Discovery (where kids can try out different instruments and discover their inner musician!). Best-costume prizes will be awarded onstage during the concert to audience members and orchestra musicians!    The Family Concert season continues on Friday evening, March 8, at 7 p.m., with Symphony Under the Sea. Submerge yourself in wet, watery, and wonderful music — including Disney’s beloved theme to The Little Mermaid, Handel’s Water Music, and more — as we go under the sea with The Cleveland Orchestra! Cleveland’s wonderful Singing Angels will join the Orchestra for a musical family night to remember. In addition, young orchestra students from the El Sistema@Rainey program provide a pre-concert performance at 6:00 pm.    On Sunday afternoon, May 12, at 2 p.m., discover how composers use music to bring characters and plots to life in Fables, Fantasy, and Folklore and help us create a new musical story with your imagination and the help of The Cleveland Orchestra! This highly interactive concert includes such classics as Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade (based on Tales from the Arabian Nights) and Grieg’s “In the Hall of the Mountain King.” Bring your family and your imagination to this fun-filled musical afternoon.    After each concert this season, stop by the Cleveland Orchestra Store to check out the terrific collection of books and CDs, gift items, and logo-wear for kids and adults — and pick up a special souvenir courtesy of series sponsor, The Giant Eagle Foundation.    We are delighted to welcome your family to Severance Hall throughout this season as you create new traditions and enduring family memories. Remember to make music a part of your life every day!

The Cleveland Orchestra of Music Director Franz Welser-Möst, The Cleveland Orchestra has become one of the most sought-after performing ensembles in the world. In concerts at its winter home at Severance Hall and at each summer’s Blossom Festival, in residencies from Miami to Vienna, and on tour around the world, The Cleveland Orchestra sets standards of artistic excellence, creative programming, and community engagement. The partnership with Franz Welser-Möst, now in its eleventh season — and with a commitment to the Orchestra’s centennial in 2018 u n d e r th e l e a d e r shi p

— has moved the ensemble forward with a series of new and ongoing initiatives, including: the establishment of residencies around the world, fostering creative artistic growth and an expanded financial base, including an ongoing residency at the Vienna Musik­verein (the first of its kind by an American orchestra); expansion of education and community programs in Northeast Ohio to make music an integral and regular part of everyday life for more people; the

2012-13 season includes the launch of an annual Neighborhood Residency program that will bring The Cleveland Orchestra to neighborhoods throughout the region for an intensive week of special activities and performances. First stop: the Gordon Square District in Cleveland’s Detroit/Shoreway neighborhood; an ongoing residency in Florida, under the name Cleveland Orch­estra Miami, involving an annual series of concerts and community activities, coupled with an expansive set of educational presentations and collaborations (based on successful educational programs pioneered at home in Cleveland); creative new artistic collaborations, including staged works and chamber music performances, with arts institutions in Northeast Ohio and in Miami; an array of new concert offerings (including Fridays@7 and Celebrity Series at Severance Hall as well as movie, themed, and family presentations at Blossom) to make a wider variety of concerts more available and affordable; a concentrated and ongoing effort to develop future generations of audiences for Cleveland Orchestra concerts in Northeast Ohio, through research, targeted discounts, social media offers and promotion, and student ticket programs; concert tours from coast to coast in the United States, including annual appearances at Carnegie Hall; regular concert tours to Europe (including residencies at the Lucerne Festival) and Asia; Severance Hall 2012-13

ongoing recording activities, including new releases under the direction of Franz Welser-Möst, Mitsuko Uchida, and Pierre Boulez, as well as a series of DVD concert presentations of symphonies by Anton Bruckner; continuing and expanded educational partnerships with schools, colleges, and universities across Northeast Ohio and in the Miami-Dade community; additional new residencies at Indiana University and at New York’s Lincoln Center Festival; the return of ballet as a regular part of the Orchestra’s presentations, featuring performances by The Joffrey Ballet; the 2012-13 season includes the Orchestra’s first fully staged performances of Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker. The Cleveland Orchestra was founded in 1918 by a group of local citizens intent on creating an ensemble worthy of joining America’s ranks of major symphony orchestras. Over the ensuing decades, the Orchestra quickly grew from a fine regional organization to being one of the most admired symphony orchestras in the world. The opening in 1931 of Severance Hall as the Orchestra’s home brought a special pride to the ensemble and its hometown, as well as providing an enviable and intimate acoustic environment in which to develop and refine the Orchestra’s artistry. Year-round performances became a reality in 1968 with the opening of Blossom Music Center, one of the most beautiful and acoustically admired outdoor concert facilities in the United States.

Musical Words: A Glossary We know that some musical terms may be new to you and your family. This glossary of words can help you talk about the music you hear at each Cleveland Orchestra Family Concert. Can you locate each instrument family on stage?   Brass — instruments whose sound is produced by blowing into a cup-shaped mouthpiece   Percussion — instruments whose sound is produced by shaking, striking together, or hitting with hands or mallets   Strings — instruments whose sound is produced by plucking or by pulling a bow across stretched strings; this is the largest family in the orchestra   Woodwinds — instruments whose sound is produced by a vibrating column of air enclosed in a pipe or tube; except for the flute and piccolo, the vibration is produced by blowing against a single or double “reed”

Can you hear when these different dynamics occur during the performance?   Dynamics — variations in how loud or soft the music is

Here are some Italian words commonly used to describe different dynamics:            

Crescendo — gradually louder Diminuendo — gradually softer Forte — loud Fortissimo — very loud Piano — soft Pianissimo — very soft

Can you pick out the following musical elements in each piece?                    

Rhythm — a combination of notes of varying lengths Beat — the pulse in music (when you tap your foot to music, you are “feeling the beat”) Meter — the organization of beats into repeating patterns, such as double (ONE two ONE two) or triple (ONE two three ONE two three) groupings or “measures” Syncopation — a shift of accent from the first beat of a measure to a beat that is not normally accented; this rhythm technique gives energy and excitement to the music Tempo — indicates how fast (or slow) the music is going; the speed of the beat Accelerando — getting faster; the word “accelerate” comes from this Italian word Adagio — slow, relaxed in tempo Allegro — fast, brisk Ritardando — slowing down the music Staccato — detached, very short sounds

The initiative is an intensive after-school orchestral music program launched in September 2011 by Cleveland Orchestra violinist Isabel Trautwein and Cleveland’s Rainey Institute. Modeled after the national Venezuelan program El Sistema (“the system”), the initiative emphasizes community-based orchestra training from a young age, with a focus on making music fun and inspiring young musicians with a passion for music and for life. The Cleveland Orchestra and education partner Conn-Selmer are the official providers of instruments for the El Sistema@Rainey program, with instrument support from Royalton Music for El Sistema@Rainey Summer Camp.

Late Seating As a courtesy to the audience members and musicians in the hall, late-arriving patrons are asked to wait quietly until the first convenient break in the program, when ushers will help you to your seats. These seating breaks are at the discretion of the House Manager in consultation with the performing artists. Pagers, Cell Phones, and wristwatch alarms All electronic and mechanical devices — including pagers, cellular telephones, and wristwatch alarms — must be turned off while in the concert hall.

of the world’s most beautiful concert halls, Severance Hall has been home to The Cleveland Orchestra since its opening on February 5, 1931. After that first concert, a Cleveland newspaper editorial stated: “We believe that Mr. Severance intended to build a temple to music, and not a temple to wealth; and we believe it is his intention that all music lovers should be welcome there.” John Long Severance (president of the Musical Arts Association, 1921-1936) and his wife, Elisabeth, donated the funds necessary to erect this magnificent building. Designed by Walker & Weeks, its elegant Georgian exterior was constructed to harmonize with the classical architecture of other prominent buildings in the University Circle area. The interior of the building reflects a combination of design styles, including Art Deco, Egyptian Revival, Classicism, and Modernism. An extensive renovation, restoration, and expansion of the facility was completed in January 2000. h a i l e d a s o n e


Photography, Videography, and Recording At all times, cameras and tape recorders must be kept outside the concert hall. For the safety of guests and performers, photography and videography are strictly prohibited. In the Event of an Emergency Contact an usher or a member of house staff if you require medical assistance. Emergency exits are clearly marked throughout the building. Ushers and house staff will provide instructions in the event of an emergency. age restrictions Regardless of age, each person must have a ticket and be able to sit quietly in a seat throughout the performance. Season subscription concerts are not recommended for children under the age of 8. However, there are several age-appropriate series designed specifically for children and youth, including: Musical Rainbows, (recommended for children 3 to 6 years old), and Family Concerts (for ages 7 and older). crying CHILD? We understand that sometimes young children cannot sit quietly through a one-hour concert and need to get up and move or talk freely. For the listening enjoyment of those around you, we respectfully ask that you and your active child step out of the concert hall to stretch your legs (and baby’s lungs). An usher will gladly help you return to your seat at an appropriate break. Severance Hall

A portrait of Wolfgang Amadè Mozart, painted in 1819 by Barbara Kraft, based on paintings created during the composer’s lifetime


I cannot write in verse, for I am no poet. I cannot arrange the parts of speech with such art as to produce effects of light and shade, for I am no painter. Even by signs and gestures I cannot express my thoughts and feelings, for I am no dancer. But I can do so by means of sound, for I am a musician.


—W. A. Mozart, November 1777
