Perspectivesfrom the Executive Director January 2013 Welcome to Severance Hall and the first concerts of 2013! There is much good news to report about The Cleveland Orchestra’s ticket sales success in recent months and for the season as a whole. Continuing artistic success and significant programmatic changes have put the current 2012-13 Severance Hall season on track to achieve a new all-time record for ticket sales revenue. The months of November and December 2012 broke all previous records. More than 47,000 people purchased tickets for twenty-six performances, a 28% increase over the twenty-five concerts performed in the same months in 2011. This success was propelled by the most diversified programming we have ever offered, ranging from Classical, Celebrity, KeyBank Fridays@7, and Holiday Festival concerts, to The Nutcracker, Pink Martini, and Charlie Chaplin’s Modern Times accompanied by the Orchestra. Overall paid attendance filled 92% of the available seats and revenues totaled $2.8 million, an amazing 60% increase over last year. Sales are strong for the entire September-to-May season. As January begins, revenues are running 24% ahead of the same time last year and are on track to achieve an all-time record of $7.6 million. The previous record was set more than a decade ago. This season’s renaissance is a convincing sign that the public is responding to the Orchestra’s many changes. More people are attending more kinds of performances than ever before, and more new people — and young people — are entering the doors of Severance Hall to enjoy the Orchestra’s concerts each week. A surge of student attendees, attracted by diversified programs, special offers, and social media, has helped propel audience growth. The number of students attending Cleveland Orchestra concerts at Severance Hall so far this season has more than doubled over the same period a year ago. There are many people to acknowledge and thank for this turn-around. Dozens of sponsors and donors have generously funded the innovations behind these achievements. Every one of the institution’s employees, the extraordinary members of our Orchestra and our tireless staff, has risen to the challenge of implementing change — with our dedicated trustees leading the way. Finally, thousands of longtime and new patrons have become loyal supporters, venturing with us through the many changes in recent seasons. Thank you to all. And what’s still to come? In future seasons, we will pursue ever-greater artistic achievements under Franz’s inspiring leadership, alongside continuing innovation as we work to ensure that The Cleveland Orchestra remains relevant and valuable in our ever-changing community.

MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. CELEBRATION. The Cleveland Orchestra’s Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration Concert fills the stage with performers, featuring the volunteer Celebration Chorus assembled and prepared especially for this event. This year’s soldout concert on January 20 is the Orchestra’s 33nd annual presentation in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King’s life and legacy.

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 — has moved the ensemble forward with a series of new and ongoing initiatives, including: UNDER THE LEADERSHIP

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 pro-

gram that will bring The Cleveland Orchestra to neighborhoods across the region for an intensive week of special activities and performances. First stop is the Gordon Square Arts District in Cleveland’s Detroit/Shoreway neighborhood in May 2013; 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; concert tours from coast to coast in the United States, including annual appearances at Carnegie Hall; regular concert tours to Europe and Asia; 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; 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; 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 featured 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.

P H OTO BY D O N S N Y D E R

T H E 2 0 1 2 - 1 3 S E A S O N marks Franz Welser-Möst’s eleventh year as music director of The Cleveland Orchestra, with a long-term commitment extending to the Orchestra’s centennial in 2018. Under his direction, the Orchestra is acclaimed for its continuing artistic excellence, is enlarging and enhancing its community programming at home, is presented in a series of ongoing residencies in the United States and Europe, continues its historic championship of new composers through commissions and premieres, and has re-established itself as an important operatic ensemble. Concurrently with his post in Cleveland, Mr. Welser-Möst became general music director of the Vienna State Opera in September 2010. With a committed focus on music education in Northeast Ohio, Franz Welser-Möst has taken The Cleveland Orchestra back into public schools with performances in collaboration with the Cleveland Metropolitan School District. The initiative continues and expands upon Mr. Welser-Möst’s active participation in community concerts and educational programs, including the Cleveland Orchestra Youth Orchestra and partnerships with music conservatories and universities across Northeast Ohio. Under Mr. Welser-Möst’s leadership, The Cleveland Orchestra has established an ongoing biennial residency in Vienna at the famed Musikverein concert hall and another at Switzerland’s Lucerne Festival. Together, they have appeared in residence at Suntory Hall in Tokyo, Japan, and at the Salzburg Festival, where a 2008 residency included five sold-out performances of a staged production of Dvořák’s opera Rusalka. In the United States, Mr. Welser-Möst has established an annual multi-week Cleveland Orchestra residency in Florida under the name Cleveland Orchestra Miami and, in 2011, launched a new biennial residency at New York’s Lincoln Center Festival. To the start of this season, The Cleveland Orchestra has performed fourteen world and fifteen United States premieres under Franz Welser-Möst’s direction. Through the Roche Commissions project, he and the Orchestra have premiered works by Harrison Birtwistle, Chen Yi, Hanspeter Kyburz, George Benjamin, Toshio Hosokawa, and Matthias Pintscher in partnership with the Lucerne Festival and Carnegie Hall. In addition, the Daniel R. Lewis Young Composer Fellow program has brought new voices to the repertoire, including Pintscher, Marc-André Dalbavie, Susan Botti, Julian Anderson, Johannes Maria Staud, Jörg Widmann, and Sean Shepherd. Franz Welser-Möst has led a series of opera performances during his tenure

in Cleveland, re-establishing the Orchestra as an important operatic ensemble. Following six seasons of opera-in-concert presentations, he brought fully staged opera back to Severance Hall with a three-season cycle of Zurich Opera productions of the MozartDa Ponte operas. He led concert performances of Strauss’s Salome at Severance Hall and at Carnegie Hall in May 2012. Franz Welser-Möst became general music director of the Vienna State Opera in 2010. His long partnership with the company has included acclaimed performances of Tristan and Isolde, a new production of Wagner’s Ring cycle with stage director SvenEric Bechtolf, and critically praised new productions of Hindemith’s Cardillac and Janáček’s Katya Kabanova and From the House of the Dead. During the 2012-13 season, his Vienna performances include Wagner’s Parsifal, Strauss’s Arabella and Ariadne auf Naxos, Puccini’s La Bohème, and Berg’s Wozzeck. Mr. Welser-Möst also maintains an ongoing relationship with the Vienna Philharmonic. Recent performances with the Philharmonic include appearances at the Lucerne Festival and Salzburg Festival, in Tokyo, and in concert at La Scala Milan, as well as leading the Philharmonic’s 2011 New Year’s Day concert, viewed by telecast in seventy countries worldwide; he conducted the New Year’s Day concert again at the start of 2013 and also leads the Philharmonic in a series of concerts at New York’s Carnegie Hall in March 2013. Across a decade-long tenure with the Zurich Opera, culminating in three seasons as general music director (2005-08), Mr. Welser-Möst led the company in more than 40 new productions and numerous revivals. Franz Welser-Möst’s recordings and videos have won major awards, including the Gramophone Award, Diapason d’Or, Japanese Record Academy Award, and two Grammy nominations. With The Cleveland Orchestra, he has created DVD recordings of live performances of Bruckner symphonies, presented in three accoustically distinctive venues (the Abbey of St. Florian in Austria, Vienna’s Musikverein, and Severance Hall). With Cleveland, he has also released a recording of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony as well as an all-Wagner album featuring soprano Measha Brueggergosman. DVD releases on the EMI label have included Mr. Welser-Möst leading Zurich Opera productions of The Marriage of Figaro, Così fan tutte, Don Giovanni, Der Rosenkavalier, Fierrabras, and Peter Grimes. For his talents and dedication, Mr. Welser-Möst has received honors that include recognition from the Western Law Center for Disability Rights, honorary membership in the Vienna Singverein, appointment as an Academician of the European Academy of Yuste, a Gold Medal from the Upper Austrian government for his work as a cultural ambassador, a Decoration of Honor from the Republic of Austria for his artistic achievements, and the Kilenyi Medal from the Bruckner Society of America. He is the co-author of Cadences: Observations and Conversations, published in a German edition in 2007.

At the start of the concert, The Cleveland Orchestra in cooperation with the City of Cleveland and the Greater Cleveland Partnership present this year’s Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Community Service Awards.

We are grateful to several partners who make this concert possible. In addition to our co-presenter, the City of Cleveland, we recognize our generous sponsor, KeyBank, a Cleveland Orchestra Partner in Excellence. Thanks to Cleveland radio station WCLV, this concert is being enjoyed by thousands across Northeast Ohio as they listen to the live broadcast on radio stations WCLV (104.9 FM) and WCPN (90.3 FM).

Dear Fellow Citizens: I am pleased and proud to welcome you to Severance Hall for The Cleveland Orchestra’s annual musical tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. For more than three decades, the Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration Concert has brought Clevelanders together to honor and remember a great American leader. Tonight, the world-renowned Cleveland Orchestra, led by conductor Tito Muñoz, joins with the Central State University Chorus, the Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration Chorus, choral conductor William Henry Caldwell, and violinist Adé Williams, 14-year-old winner of the Sphinx Competition for Black and Latino string players, in a musical salute to Dr. King. I am also pleased to acknowledge the tenth anniversary of the MLK Jr. Community Services Awards, presented in cooperation with the City of Cleveland by The Cleveland Orchestra and the Greater Cleveland Partnership through the Commission on Economic Inclusion. Each year, these awards recognize members of our community who have positively impacted Cleveland in the spirit of the teachings and example of Dr. King. Martin Luther King Jr. dreamed that people of all races would unite in harmony and triumph in the struggle for peace, justice, and equality for all of humanity. Through this concert, we celebrate Dr. King’s dream and recommit to the goal of making Cleveland a city where citizens live and work as one, with equality, respect, and justice for all. Enjoy the concert. Sincerely,

Mayor Frank G. Jackson

S TAT E O F O H I O OFFICE OF THE GOVERNOR

RESOLUTION WHEREAS, the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was a man with unwavering devotion to his faith in God, his family, community, nation, and world; and WHEREAS, Dr. King dedicated his life to the principles of nonviolence, service, liberty, justice, and equality, which inspired millions around the world to work toward a common vision to make America, and the world, a place that is not segregated along racial lines, but joined in a “beautiful symphony of brotherhood”; and WHEREAS, throughout his life, Dr. King’s words and action led to groundbreaking achievements such as the 1963 March on Washington where he spoke of his vision where all are judged “by the content of their character”; and WHEREAS, Dr. King taught us that it is far better to “love than hate, to seek justice rather than revenge, to refrain from acts of violence nor excuse those who engage in violence or profess hatred for any people, group, or race”; and WHEREAS, Dr. King’s efforts and legacy of service were honored in 1983 by the President of the United States and Congress with the establishment, by law, of a national holiday to observe the anniversary of his birth; and WHEREAS, it is fitting that Ohioans reflect on the life and accomplishments of Dr. King and recognize that his vision continues to provide a powerful symbol of a life based on the values of love, peace, compassion, dignity, nonviolence, and justice for all; and WHEREAS, all Ohioans are encouraged to join with the state and nation as we remember Dr. King’s legacy of cooperation between all segments of our diverse community. NOW, THEREFORE, I, John R. Kasich, Governor of the State of Ohio, do hereby recognize January 21, 2013, as

MARTIN LUTHER KING DAY throughout Ohio and I urge all Ohioans to take part in the observance and celebrate the life of Dr. King, whose struggle for civil rights and noble pursuit of equality for all Americans deserves our heartfelt appreciation.

Martin Luther King Jr. Community Service Awards

The Cleveland Orchestra


Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. 2013 Community Service Awards The Cleveland Orchestra and the Greater Cleveland Partnership, in cooperation with the City of Cleveland, are pleased to announce the recipients of the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Community Service Awards, who are positively impacting Cleveland in the spirit of the teachings and example of Dr. King: Care Alliance Health Center — organization Dr. Betty K. Pinkney — adult individual Justin Orr — youth individual Cory United Methodist Church — special recognition Award recipients demonstrate one or more of the following qualities: • Leadership in community building • Advocacy for educational excellence • Accomplishments in furthering economic opportunity • Promotion of social justice • Achievements in advancing cultural awareness • Adherence to the principles of nonviolence • Achievements in organizational diversity and inclusion • Involvement with music and the arts to promote greater understanding and acceptance

ABOUT THE 2013 AWARD RECIPIENTS For more than a quarter century, Care Alliance Health Center has sought to uplift humanity each and every day through the delivery of high quality medical, dental, and supportive services to residents who are homeless, uninsured, under-insured, or living in extreme poverty. More recently, Care Alliance has experienced a significant increase in demand for its services as Northeast Ohioans continue to struggle with the impact of job losses and the economic downturn. At Care Alliance Health Center, no one is turned away for inability to pay. Dr. King said, “The time is always right to do what is right.” Care Alliance does what is right by providing high quality health care to those who can least afford it. Dr. Betty Pinkney is a living example of Dr. King’s words, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” As a respected lawyer, political activist, community leader, and classroom teacher, Dr. Betty Pinkney has been described as “a profile in courage, civility, and commitment, for community empower-

ment, social justice, and educational excellence.” She has served with distinction as an attorney with the Cleveland field office of the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and as district director to Congresswoman Stephanie Tubbs-Jones and on the boards of numerous community organizations. Dr. Pinkney was instrumental in advocating for programs to support education for underserved students with NASA and Cleveland State University, and has been a role model and guiding force for countless African American men and women throughout the region. One supporter wrote, “Dr. Pinkney’s life exemplifies many of the traits we associate with Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., another great ‘Drum Major for Justice’.” As president of the Cleveland NAACP Youth Council, Justin Orr led a youth effort that registered over 600 voters for the 2012 election. In the spirit of Dr. King, he traveled the community providing information and education, focusing on registering youth turning 18, first-time voters, and ex-felons. Like Dr. King, Justin is committed to bringing about positive change in his community. This weekend Justin will conduct the second annual Youth Empowerment Workshop, covering issues such as youth violence, financial literacy, and affirmative action. Justin is a Solon High School senior, a member of the National Honor Society and the Varsity Track Team, serves as a Cleveland Clinic junior ambassador, and is a Sunday School teacher at Destiny Church. He is the recipient of the 2012 national Medgar Evers Youth Leadership Award. Justin truly exemplifies the type of youth that Dr. King envisioned to make this a better world. Cory United Methodist Church, one of the oldest churches in Cleveland, was founded in 1875 and quickly became an important community center as well as religious institution. By the 1940s, Cory operated a library, gymnasium, swimming pool, and music school, with three choirs and a concert hall. Over the years, the congregation has reflected both the needs and the resources of our community. Cory has been the site of the Cory Rec Center, operated in part by the City’s Division of Recreation since 1961. As a community center for political discourse and debate, Cory hosted both Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr. in the 1960s. Malcolm X delivered his famous “The Ballot or the Bullet” speech at Cory in 1964 and Martin Luther King Jr. gave his last speech in Cleveland at the church. Cory serves the greater community with its Hunger Center, Headstart daycare program, Cory Kitchen, Senior Program, Credit Union, and much more. Cory United Methodist Church also has a very special relationship with The Cleveland Orchestra. For a number of years, from 1987 until 1997, and again in 1999, The Cleveland Orchestra’s Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration Concert was presented in the sanctuary of Cory Church. The concert eventually outgrew Cory’s sanctuary and parking lot and moved permanently to Severance

Dr. King said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’” Cory Church is recognized this year with a special award, to honor all that it does for others through its unending service to the Cleveland community in the spirit of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Lift every voice and sing, ’Til earth and heaven ring, Ring with the harmonies of liberty; Let our rejoicing rise High as the listening skies, Let it resound loud as the rolling sea.

Sing a song full of the faith that the dark past has taught us. Sing a song full of the hope That the present has brought us. Facing the rising sun of our new day begun, Let us march on ’til victory is won.

The Cleveland Orchestra


Adé Williams Violinist Adé Williams is the first place laureate of the Junior Division of the 2012 Sphinx Competition. At the age of fourteen, she is making her debut with The Cleveland Orchestra in this evening’s concert. Named artist-in-residence with the Waukegan Symphony Orchestra in 2012, Ms. Williams also had a year of exciting opportunities in 2011, including a fourteen-city tour with the Sphinx Virtuosi and appearing as soloist internationally in Switzerland and Bermuda. Previous competitions have included her being named a first place winner of the 2011 DePaul Concerto Festival for Young Performers, first place and best interpretation of Korean music winner in the 2010 Senior and 2009 Junior Divisions of the Sejong Cultural Society’s Music Competition, and (among her earliest awards) first place in the 2005 Walgreen’s National Concerto Competition. Adé Williams made her orchestral debut at the age of six in 2004 with the Chicago Sinfonietta as that orchestra’s youngest soloist ever. She has appeared with many ensembles since that time, including the Illinois Symphony Orchestra, Highland Park Strings at Ravinia, and Chicago’s South Side Family Chamber Orchestra. Her 2006 radio debut was on Chicago radio station WFMT’s Young Artist Showcase. Ms. Williams played with the Okemo String Quartet 2009-11 and has been a winner or finalist in several chamber music competitions. In 2004, she founded SugarStrings (www.sugarstrings.com) with her cousins, Mira and Ayanna. The string trio has performed for many charitable events in the Chicago area and has been featured widely on television and in print media. Adé Williams performs on a violin by Jan van Rooyen, 2008, after the “Comte de Villares” Stradivarius, 1720, on generous loan from the Rachel Elizabeth Barton Foundation. She is honored to be a Bauder Fellow, a Links Fellow, and recipient of generous support from Alexandra Nichols.

THE SPHINX COMPETITION is a program of the Sphinx Organization, a national arts organization

that focuses on youth and minority involvement in classical music. Held every year in Ann Arbor and Detroit, Michigan, the competition is open to all junior high, high school, and college-age Black and Latino string players residing in the United States. The purpose of the competition is to offer these young musicians an opportunity to compete under the guidance of an internationally renowned panel of judges and to perform with established professional musicians in a competition setting. Its primary goals are to encourage, develop, and recognize classical music talent in the Black and Latino communities. While in Cleveland, Sphinx laureates often assist education and community relations efforts to increase interest, awareness, and knowledge of classical music through school visits in Cleveland and East Cleveland, and presentations at various community sites.

The Cleveland Orchestra celebrates the dreams of Martin Luther King Jr. by Carol Jacobs

demonstrated early its commitment to honoring this country’s greatest civil rights leader. Four days after the April 4, 1968, assassination of Martin Luther King, The Cleveland Orchestra under George Szell performed the “Allegretto” movement from Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7 as a memorial tribute to the life of Dr. King. Toward the end of the next decade, The Cleveland Orchestra played a key role in the evolution of a more formal and institutionalized recognition of Dr. King’s life. The Orchestra’s first Martin Luther King Jr. Concert took place in January 1980. In the program book of that first concert, Dr. Donald G. Jacobs, executive director of the Greater Cleveland Interchurch Council, applauded The Cleveland Orchestra “ for taking seriously the need for the whole community to recognize the vital role the life and death of Dr. King continues to play in the struggle for racial justice and human dignity.” The Martin Luther King Jr. Concert quickly became an annual event both as a tribute to Dr. King and as an expression of commitment to the struggle for racial justice and human dignity. From 1980 to 1986, the Musical Arts Association and the Interchurch Council collaborated in presenting these Severance Hall concerts. In January 1986, the Jewish Community Federation and the Catholic Diocese of Cleveland joined the Interchurch Council and the Musical Arts Association in sponsoring the event. That same year, the federal government officially designated the third Monday in January as a public holiday celebrating the life and work of Dr. King. In 1986, the City of Cleveland became directly involved in presenting these concerts at the request of Cleveland City Council President George Forbes and Mayor George Voinovich. From 1987 to 1997, the annual King concert took place at Cory United Methodist Church, the site of Dr. King’s last speech in Cleveland. The concert was held at Severance Hall in 1998 and again in 2000 as part of the re-opening festivities following the Hall’s restoration. Severance Hall has continued to host the concert since then. Many distinguished performing artists have participated in these concerts, including Andrew Davis, Christoph von Dohnányi, Leslie Dunner, Raymond Harvey, Isaiah Jackson, Kay George Roberts, André Raphel Smith, Thomas Wilkins, Florence Quivar, Daisy Newman, Cissy Houston, Janet Alcorn, Barbara Conrad, John Cheek, Natalie Hinderas, William Warfield, Leon

Bibb, and John Fleming. Music Director Franz Welser-Möst first conducted the Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration Concert in 2003, and also conducted it in 2004, 2006, and 2009. Beginning with the 1989 concert, volunteers from the greater Cleveland area were organized by Alvin Parris into a Community Gospel Choir, now called the Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration Chorus. In the past decade, William Henry Caldwell has taken on the role of chorus director. Other choral participants have included the Cleveland Orchestra Chorus, Prestonian Choral Ensemble, Morgan State University Choir, Shaw High School Concert Choir, Everett Moore Singers, and the Central State University Chorus. An important facet of these programs has been the presentation of contemporary American works, including those of Donald Erb, William Grant Still, Ulysses Kay, Carman Moore, Alvin Parris, Joseph Schwantner, Hale Smith, Undine Smith Moore, George Walker, and Lanny Wolfe. The singing of “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” with audience participation, has been a tradition since the 1984 concert. Carol Jacobs served as Archivist for The Cleveland Orchestra from 1990 to 2007.

We believe in working for the greater good of all and we are proud to support any organization that shares this value. We thank The Cleveland Orchestra for its commitment to excellence! Ken Lanci, Chairman & CEO Consolidated Companies

little or no direct experience or knowledge of the struggle for civil rights and human dignity in this country, or of the heroes who led the protest, nor the price they paid. In this age when we still see so much violence around us, it is necessary and proper to study the lives and works of men and women who achieved so much with nonviolent techniques. Martin Luther King Jr. was one of those persons. Michael Luther King was born in Atlanta, Georgia, on January 15, 1929, the son and grandson of Baptist ministers. He later changed his name to Martin Luther King. He was protected somewhat as a child because he was the son of “substantial” Black parents. However, he, too, faced personal incidents in the South that smacked of discrimination and social injustice. In Atlanta, he attended Booker T. Washington High School. By the time he was 19, he had graduated as a special gifted student from Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia, and then continued his ministerial education by obtaining a Bachelor of Divinity Degree at Crozer Theological Seminary. He was awarded a PhD from Boston University in 1955. While he was pursuing his education in Massachusetts, King met and married Coretta Scott from Alabama, who was studying voice at the New England Conservatory of Music. During those early formative years, he developed a fascination for the life and teachings of Mahatma Gandhi, who articulated a doctrine of passive resistance to gain freedom in India. While Martin Luther King was studying for his doctor-

ate in 1954, he was offered and accepted the pastorate of the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church in Montgomery, Alabama. In 1955, Black people in Alabama were still sent to the rear of any public conveyance — segregated seating. The Montgomery Improvement Association (MIA) was organized in December 1955 to change that situation. King became MIA’s president and preached resistance with love — not hate — for the oppressors. During this period of change in Alabama, many Black people were arrested, physically attacked, and otherwise intimidated. Still their protest made its point. The United States Supreme Court finally ruled that existing Alabama laws regarding segregated seating were unconstitutional. Blacks and whites rode buses for the first time on a non-segregated basis. The success of the venture taught civil rights advocates that there was power in good organization and strong leadership, which King provided. Martin Luther King was convinced that his leadership strength lay in its nonviolent approach and proceeded to follow his own dictates by organizing the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) in January 1957 to widen the effects of his Montgomery success. King moved his family to Atlanta in 1959, where he joined forces with his father, who was the minister associated with the Ebenezer Baptist Church. King’s life was anything but nonviolent. He was frequently arrested, jailed, and physically bruised. Fire hoses and attack dogs became a way of life for this fighter of social injustice. His life was one long thread of demonstrations on buses and other public conveyances, in restaurants, hotels, department stores and other places that needed to be desegregated. Massive demonstrations took the form of freedom marches in Alabama and Washington. These challenged people of all faiths, races and religions to join the fight for freedom for all Americans. From all over the nation people joined together in support of the civil rights movement. King’s speeches were impassioned and concerned his personal and his race’s fight against prejudice. They often referred to his philosophy of nonviolence, containing the “I have a dream” appeal first introduced at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C., during the 1963 March on Washington. In 1964, Martin Luther King, at the age of 35, became the youngest man to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Four years later he was struck down while supporting a sanitation worker strike in Memphis, Tennessee. While standing on a motel balcony, on April 4, 1968, he was shot by an assassin.

OrchestraNews 2013 New Year’s Day concert with Franz Welser-Möst and Vienna Philharmonic recordings now available

At the end of November, Franz WelserMöst delivered an impassioned keynote address on the importance of supporting and expanding a vibrant, multi-national cultural life in modern society during a gala celebrating the Bicentennial of Vienna’s famed concert hall, the Musikverein. The event was held in the Brahmssaal of the Musikverein and also featured remarks from Austria’s president, minister of culture, and culture secretary, along with the Musikverein’s president and intendant. The event was held prior to a concert conducted by Nikolaus Harnoncourt. Welser-Möst’s speech addressed fundamental questions about how to champion and renew culture in a world that too often marginalizes these essential elements in favor of maintaining health and welfare. “Cultivation, which must be one of the foundations of any society, requires creativity,” said Welser-Möst. “We must give this more thought, to formulate new dreams and set new goals — to aim for the impossible, both for ourselves and for coming generations, and to perhaps come just a bit closer to precisely that which we will never achieve. Any person who wants to accomplish something special does precisely this, by declaring the impossible to be the goal.”

Welser-Möst advocates for art and culture with keynote address in Vienna

THE CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA

Sony Classical has announced the release of the newest edition of one of the world’s most famous classical music events — the Vienna Philharmonic’s annual New Year’s Concert from 2013. Franz Welser-Möst returned to direct the 2013 concert following the success of his debut in 2011. The live recording became available on January 4, exclusively at Arkiv Music and via Amazon.com’s CreateSpace’s Disc on Demand service as a CD, or as a download through all major digital service providers. The CD version is being released to other retailers on January 22, with the DVD version following in February. The New Year’s Concert of the Vienna Philharmonic is firmly established as one of the longest-standing and most prestigious music events worldwide. In its history of more than seven decades, the concert has been led by many of the most famous conductors and experienced by millions of people via television broadcasts in over 70 countries. In announcing the recordings, Clemens Hellsberg, chairman of the Vienna Philharmonic, emphasized the plaudits that Franz Welser-Möst earned for this event in 2011 and his close association with the musical life of Vienna as general music director of the State Opera, making made him a natural choice to encore his role for New Year’s. For seven decades, the Vienna Philharmonic has presented this entertaining and heartfelt annual New Year’s program, featuring music from across the wide repertoire created by the Johann Strauss family dynasty and their contemporaries. The proven formula blends well-known classics with premieres of works that have never been performed before at the New Year’s Concert. This year’s program included eleven premieres (more than ever before) and also paid tribute to Wagner and Verdi, looking to the bicentennials this spring of their births.

THE CLEVELAN D ORCHESTRA R E C O R D I N G S great gift ideas

The Cleveland Orchestra’s catalog of recordings continues to grow. The newest DVD features Bruckner’s Eighth Symphony recorded live at Severance Hall under the direction of Music Director Franz Welser-Möst in 2010 and released in May 2011. And, released in 2012, Dvořák’s opera Rusalka on CD, recorded live at the Salzburg Festival. Writing of the Rusalka performances, the reviewer for London’s Sunday Times praised the performance as “the most spellbinding account of Dvořák’s miraculous score I have ever heard, either in the theatre or on record. . . . I doubt this music can be better played than by the Clevelanders, the most ‘European’ of the American orchestras, with wind and brass soloists to die for and a string sound of superlative warmth and sensitivity.” Other recordings released in recent years include two under the baton of Pierre Boulez and a third album of Mozart piano concertos with Mitsuko Uchida, whose first Cleveland Orchestra Mozart album won a Grammy Award in 2011. Visit the Cleveland Orchestra Store for the latest and best Cleveland Orchestra recordings and DVDs.

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 most of 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. In addition to serving as the home of The Cleveland Orchestra for concerts and rehearsals, the building is rented by a wide variety of local organizations and private citizens for performances, meetings, and gala events each year.

CARMINA BURANA Thursday April 11 at 8:00 p.m. Friday April 12 at 8:00 p.m. Saturday April 13 at 8:00 p.m. Sunday April 14 at 3:00 p.m.

Thursday February 21 at 8:00 p.m. Friday February 22 at 11:00 a.m. Saturday February 23 at 8:00 p.m. Sunday February 24 at 3:00 p.m. THE CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA Herbert Blomstedt, conductor

Antonín Dvořák’s brief tenure in America in the 1890s was truly a spiritual and emotional journey. His experiences in the New World are revealed in the four expansive movements of the Ninth Symphony — featuring everything from the thrill of a wild new country and its varied peoples to intense longing for his beloved Czech homeland. Guest conductor Herbert Blomstedt opens the program with one of Mozart’s most popular and classically-refined symphonies. Sponsor: Jones Day

THE CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA Franz Welser-Möst, conductor Rebecca Nelsen, soprano Nicholas Phan, tenor Stephen Powell, baritone Cleveland Orchestra Chorus Cleveland Orchestra Children’s Chorus

Carl Orff’s joyous Carmina Burana bursts forth like a boisterous street festival — filled with great music, marvelous mayhem, and delightful merriment. This modern-day Canterbury Tales comes complete with lusty hymns to springtime, animated drinking songs, and a swan’s anguishingly ironic farewell to life (on a barbecue spit!). The concert also features the world premiere of a new work by Sean Shepherd. Sponsor: KeyBank
