“The best culture in Cleveland is in my back yard.” —Hope Hungerford, Judson Manor resident since 2010

Judson Manor resident Hope Hungerford is passionate about contemporary art and an honorary director of the Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland. Living at the Manor, she appreciates its proximity to the best culture in Cleveland. “I love walking to the museum and nearby shops and restaurants in the Circle’s new Uptown district,” says Hope. “The neighborhood is vibrant and safe. It’s amazing how things have changed.” Hope notes the Manor’s other advantages. “The apartments are spacious, bright and airy. And compared to other options, it’s very affordable.”

Perspectivesfrom the Executive Director November-December 2015 The thousands of you who attend The Cleveland Orchestra’s concerts here at home know from your own experience that this orchestra is part of what makes Northeast Ohio great. And you know how good this orchestra is. Hearing them play here at Severance Hall and at Blossom, we experience their quality and versatility each year. It is nevertheless extraordinarily satisfying to read critics from across Europe praise the Orchestra’s artistic achievements, and realize that around the world, The Cleveland Orchestra is just as beloved as it is here at home. A sampling of press commentary from the Orchestra’s 2015 European Tour and Vienna Residency, October 15-31, includes: “Cleveland has one of the three best concert halls in the world. . . . The orchestra has long been considered as the most European of American orchestras. Today, it is quite simply the best.” —Le Soir, October 14, 2015 (Brussels) “With this instrument, magnificent in its velvet clarity and deep, mellow sound, Welser-Möst’s subdued presentation was revealed to be a distillate of simplicity, elegance, and stylistic precision.” —Corriere Della Sera Milan, October 20, 2015 (Milan) (Additional excerpts from reviews can be read on page 48 of this program book.) Beyond the sheer quality of their music-making, I am always impressed with the Orchestra’s dedication and focus on tour. Moving city to city, and adjusting to the different concert halls, can be challenging and wearying. But for Franz and The Cleveland Orchestra, energy and focus are never in question. As my tenure as executive director comes to an end, I have never been more proud to be associated with this great orchestra and to call this great city home. As many of you know, at the end of December I will begin my long-planned retirement from The Cleveland Orchestra. Through all of my years here, I have been humbled by the outstanding support of this community, and equally, by the phenomenal dedication that is always displayed by musicians and staff of The Cleveland Orchestra. For this support and dedication, I am sincerely grateful. For me, serving this institution has been, and remains, an experience of extraordinary excitement, meaningful challenge, and the greatest and most satisfying time of my life. As I approach the end of my tenure, I want to express my sincere thanks to you, our generous supporters, for all that you have done, and all that you will do in the future, to ensure that Cleveland can continue to be home to the world’s greatest orchestra. Cleveland will remain Barbara’s and my beloved home as we look ahead to joining you as passionate subscribers and dedicated supporters of The Cleveland Orchestra.

Remember how it felt . . . ? . . . to hear The Cleveland Orchestra for the first time? Yoash and Sharon Wiener believe there is nothing better than listening to beautiful music played by a world-class orchestra in an internationallyrenowned concert hall just a short drive from your home. And they’ve been enjoying The Cleveland Orchestra for nearly half a century. In addition to being long-time season subscribers to The Cleveland Orchestra at both Severance Hall and each summer’s Blossom Music Festival, Yoash and Sharon are supporting the Orchestra’s future through the gift annuity program. In exchange for their gift, Yoash and Sharon receive income for life and a charitable tax deduction. “Our very first date was 46 years ago at a Cleveland Orchestra performance in Severance Hall. The date was great and so was the music, and The Cleveland Orchestra has been a central part of our lives together,” says Yoash. “Participating in the gift annuity program is our way of thanking the Orchestra for all it has meant to us.”

The lotus blossom is the symbol of the Heritage Society. It represents eternal life and recognizes the permanent benefits of legacy gifts to The Cleveland Orchestra’s endowment. Said to be Elisabeth Severance’s favorite flower, the lotus is found as a decorative motif in nearly every public area of Severance Hall.

AS IT NEARS THE CENTENNIAL OF

its founding in 2018, The Cleveland Orchestra is undergoing a new transformation and renaissance. Under the leadership of Franz Welser-Möst, entering his fourteenth year as the ensemble’s music director with the 2015-16 season, The Cleveland Orchestra is acknowledged among the world’s handful of best orchestras. With Welser-Möst, the ensemble’s musicians, board of directors, staff, volunteers, and hometown are working together on a set of enhanced goals for the 21st century — to continue the Orchestra’s legendary command of musical excellence, to renew its focus on fully serving the communities where it performs through concerts, engagement, and music education, to develop the youngest audience of any orchestra, to build on its tradition of community support and financial strength, and to move forward into the Orchestra’s next century with an unshakeable commitment to innovation and a fearless pursuit of success. The Cleveland Orchestra divides its time each year across concert seasons at home in Cleveland’s Severance Hall and each summer at Blossom Music Center. Additional portions of the year are devoted to touring and to a series of innovative and intensive performance residencies. These include an annual set of concerts and education programs and partnerships in Florida, a recurring residency at Vienna’s Musikverein, and regular appearances at Switzerland’s Lucerne Festival, at New York’s Lincoln Center Festival, and at Indiana University.

Musical Excellence. The Cleveland Orchestra has long been committed to the pursuit of musical excellence in everything that it does. The Orchestra’s ongoing collaboration with Welser-Möst is widely-acknowledged among the best orchestra-conductor partnerships of today. Performances of standard repertoire and new works are unrivalled at home, in residencies around the globe, on tour across North America and Europe, and through recordings, telecasts, and radio and internet broadcasts. Its longstanding championship of new composers and commissioning of new works helps audiences experience music as a living language that grows and evolves with each new generation. Recent performances with Baroque specialists, recording projects of varying repertoire and in different locations, fruitful re-examinations and juxtapositions of the standard repertoire, and acclaimed collaborations in 20th- and 21st-century masterworks together enable The Cleveland Orchestra the ability to give musical performances second to none in the world. Serving the Community. Programs for students and community engagement activities have long been part of the Orchestra’s commitment to serving Cleveland and surrounding communities, and have more recently been extended to its touring and residencies. All are being created to connect people to music in the concert hall, in classrooms, and in everyday lives. Recent seasons have seen the launch of a unique “At Home” neighborhood residency program, designed to

Additionally, a new Make Music! initiative is being developed, championed by Franz Welser-Möst in advocacy for the benefits of direct participation in making music for people of all ages. Future Audiences. Standing on the shoulders of more than nine decades of presenting quality music education programs, the Orchestra made national and international headlines through the creation of its Center for Future Audiences in 2010. Established with a significant endowment gift from the Maltz Family Foundation, the Center is designed to provide ongoing funding for the Orchestra’s continuing work to develop interest in classical music among young people. The flagship “Under 18s Free” program has seen unparalleled success in increasing attendance and interest — with 20% of attendees now comprised of concertgoers age 25 and under. Innovative Programming. The Cleveland Orchestra was among the first American orchestras heard on a regular series of radio broadcasts, and its Severance Hall home was one of the first concert halls in the world built with recording and broadcasting capabilities. Today, Cleveland Orchestra concerts are presented in a variety of formats for a variety of audiences — including popular Friday night concerts (mixing onstage symphonic works with post-concert entertainment), film scores performed live by the Orchestra, collaboraSeverance Hall 2015-16

An Enduring Tradition of Community Support. The Cleveland Orchestra was born in Cleveland, created by a group of visionary citizens who believed in the power of music and aspired to having the best performances of great orchestral music possible anywhere. Generations of Clevelanders have supported this vision and enjoyed the Orchestra’s concerts. Hundreds of thousands have learned to love music through its education programs and celebrated important events with its music. While strong ticket sales cover just under half of each season’s costs, it is the generos-

ity of thousands each year that drives the Orchestra forward and sustains its extraordinary tradition of excellence onstage, in the classroom, and for the community. Evolving Greatness. The Cleveland Orchestra was founded in 1918. 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. Seven music directors have guided and shaped the ensemble’s growth and sound: Nikolai Sokoloff, 1918-33; Artur Rodzinski, 193343; Erich Leinsdorf, 1943-46; George Szell, 1946-70; Lorin Maazel, 1972-82; Christoph von Dohnányi, 1984-2002; and Franz Welser-Möst, since 2002. The opening in 1931 of Severance Hall as the Orchestra’s permanent home, with later acoustic refinements and remodeling

of the hall under Szell’s guidance, 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. Touring performances throughout the United States and, beginning in 1957, to Europe and across the globe have confirmed Cleveland’s place among the world’s top orchestras. 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. Today, concert performances, community presentations, touring residencies, broadcasts, and recordings provide access to the Orchestra’s acclaimed artistry to an enthusiastic, generous, and broad constituency around the world.

Franz Welser-Möst leads a concert at John Adams High School. Through such In-School Performances and Education Concerts at Severance Hall, The Cleveland Orchestra has introduced more than 4 million young people to symphonic music over the past nine decades.

INTRODUCING THE CONCERTS

Holidays&Hallelujah! H A N D E L’ S M E S S I A H was written in 1742 and premiered in Dublin

the day before Easter Sunday in the spring of 1743. It won acclaim and admiration right from the start, and soon became one of the bestknown and most-played Christian oratorio. Handel and his librettist collaborator, Charles Jennens, created the work in three parts, using Bible texts from both the New and Old Testament. The first part is the prophecy for and birth of Jesus. The second part is of Christ’s sacrifice and death. And the third part is an ode to the promise of eternal life. Over the centuries, performing traditions for Messiah have varied from the original small group of performers to performances by mega-choirs of hundreds and reorchestrated instrumentation. The glory and majesty of the music has always managed to shine through — and even many of the more subtle and sensitive details that Handel created. This season’s Cleveland Orchestra presentation leans back to small force, featuring the Cleveland Orchestra Chamber Chorus and an appropriately-sized orchestral ensemble. The Orchestra’s esteemed choral director, Robert Porco, leads these performances just as the Christmas season is upon us. (And while many in the audience know many of these choruses by heart, let us resist the temptation to sing along — and leave that pleasure for another day.) —Eric Sellen

Handel wrote Messiah between August 22 and September 14, 1741. The text was compiled by Charles Jennens from Bible verses. The first performance took place in Dublin, Ireland (at Neal’s new Music Hall in Fishamble Street), on April 13, 1742, the day before Easter Sunday. The Cleveland Orchestra is using the score edition of Watkins Shaw (first published in 1959 on the 200th anniversary of Handel’s death), which calls for an orchestra of 2 oboes, bassoon, 2 trumpets, timpani, harpsichord, organ, and strings. This weekend’s performanc-

es feature a commonly presented selection of numbers from the score, comprising about 90% of the music that Handel created; a few numbers are omitted from the Second and Third parts of the score. The Cleveland Orchestra has often presented excerpts from Messiah, especially at Christmas Concerts. The entire oratorio was first performed by the Orchestra in December 1965, led by Robert Shaw. The most recent performances of the oratorio’s three parts were presented in December 2009, under Robert Porco’s direction.

About the Music H A N D E L first came to London in 1710 and, with some brief returns to his native Germany, remained there for the rest of his life. Otherwise, he scarcely ever left the capital, with the single exception of a long visit in 1841-42 to Dublin, which was then, like all of Ireland, within the British King’s domain. In Dublin, Handel was engaged to give a season of concerts in a new concert hall that had just been built, the Great Music Hall, which seated six hundred and survives today only in its white entrance arch. Although Messiah had been composed at great speed in London a few months before he left, he did not include it in this series, but performed three of his other oratorios, twice each. These initial concerts were a huge success, so he was persuaded to give a second series of six concerts. But he still did not present Messiah, playing instead two of his oratorios twice each and one of his Italian operas (Imeneo) twice. Dublin audiences being now thoroughly familiar with his music and burning with enthusiasm to hear more, it was time to produce “Mr. Handel’s new Grand Oratorio call’d the Messiah.” Like the great dramatist he was, and experienced in the art of handling popular acclaim, Handel seems to have kept his powder dry in holding his masterpiece back until it was guaranteed such thunderous applause as would still ring round the world About the Music

nearly three centuries later. The choirs of both of Dublin’s cathedrals were brought in as reinforcement. Since that April day in Dublin in 1742, Messiah has never dropped out of sight and hearing. With this single work, Handel broke down the age-old assumption that music belongs to its own time and to its own time only. Gregorian chant was supposed to be eternal, but all the music that Bach and Vivaldi, for example, were expected to write was also expected to be replaced by the next generation of composers. Bach’s sons held their father in great respect, but were bound to compose in newer, more up-to-date styles. In a new era, however, the Enlightenment had produced an antiquarian spirit that caused such men as Handel’s young friend Dr. Burney to research the music of previous centuries, so that it gradually became possible for music to outlive its creator. Taking an interest in medieval music or Monteverdi was, for the first time, rewarding to men with intellectual curiosity and a scientific turn of mind. Still, new music was much appreciated. By performing Messiah on his return to London in 1742, and then reviving it in 1743, Handel encountered a stumbling block in the form of puritanical objections that the theater was the wrong place to perform such a sacred piece, and that the musical setting was in any case too theatrical and secular, blasphemous even. This undercurrent of resistance was overcome in 1750 when Handel gave a performance in the Foundling Hospital recently founded for the charitable care of orphans and needy children. This was such a success — and its motives were so charitable — that he repeated the performance every year until his death, in parallel with performances every year at Covent Garden theater. By the time he died in 1759, Handel had presided over thirty-six performances of Messiah, a far greater number than he could have expected when he composed it. Performances continued in London and the provinces after his death, so the work inevitably took center stage in the huge Handel commemoration that took place in Westminster Abbey in 1784 (mistakenly thought to be the centennial of his birth), with massed forces of perhaps five hundred taking part. After such an expansion, Messiah not only survives until today as a repertory work for choral societies, it has won the affection of the entire Christian world to a degree scarcely rivaled by any About the Music

other piece of music. It was normal in the 18th century to adapt a work every time it was performed, since the right instrumentalists and especially singers were not always available. Star singers were accustomed to demanding (and getting) replacements for arias that they did not like or which did not suit their voice. Handel and his librettist Charles Jennens were also free to shift their opinion of how the work should go. With so many performances under his own direction, Handel left innumerable revisions and alternatives in the score of Messiah. It was generally revised in the direction of expansion, so that what began, in his draft score, as a work requiring little more than strings and continuo as accompaniment, soon gained additional arias and alternative keys. It also became very long, so that modern performances almost invariably present only a selection from its fifty-odd movements. In 1790, Mozart re-wrote the orchestration to adapt Messiah to Viennese conditions and taste, so it then included clarinets, and it was customary to add trombones and even percussion as late as the mid-20th century. Today, we witness a wide variety of approaches, made possible by Handel’s own compulsive tinkering — and by the recognition that in his grander movements such as the Hallelujah!

handful of singers and players. In any case, the world’s larger choral societies are not going to yield up some of their favorite repertory to the high priests of “authentic” performance. THE MUSIC

It was not really necessary for Handel to call his new work a “Sacred” Oratorio, since most oratorios were settings of episodes in the Bible, usually the Old Testament. From Italian opera, of which Handel had proved himself the supreme master in the period 1710 to 1730, he took the aria as a separate number for a single voice, reflecting on the situation and the dilemma or tension it creates. In an oratorio, such an aria could also tackle a theological issue, but the A-B-A “da capo” form was still useful, with a contrasting B section before a return to the A section unchanged. There are four such arias in Messiah, including the affecting “He was despised” for alto (soloists today usually prefer the designation “mezzo-soprano”) early in Part II. Some arias dispense with the “B” section, as in the bass aria “The people that walked in darkness” in Part I, which also illustrates the principle of affekt. In this doctrine, the music makes a point of illustrating as closely as possible something in the text, here the wandering course of the benighted people. At other times it might be dying, or lamentation, or joy, and so on, that provides the clue. A spectacular example is provided by the tenor aria in Part II “Thou shalt break them,” the culmination of a sequence from Psalm 2 where the psalmist rails against God’s enemies. The bass soloist furiously defies the kings and rulers who “take counsel together against the Lord,” prompting the chorus to break out in fury “Let us break their bonds asunder.” Then, with sadistic relish, the tenor concludes the sequence with “Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.” The image of rage and destruction is perfectly captured in Handel’s quivering, leaping violin line. Like the three-act Italian operas of Handel’s day, oratorios were divided into three parts, and were expected to provide an entertainment of at least three hours’ length. (During the two intermissions, it was Handel’s habit to play an organ concerto or a concerto grosso, not to be listened to, but simply to amuse the audience as they moved about the theater talking with one another.) In both opera and oratorio, the action of the story is told in recitative, with a speech-like delivery over sporadic chords. This Severance Hall 2015-16

is often given to the tenor soloist. Since there is little narrative action in Messiah, the recitatives are short. The new element that most operas lacked was the chorus, who are not simple observers as in Greek tragedy, but participants in the action. The stories Handel chose for setting as oratorios — such as Israel in Egypt, Saul, Samson, Judas Maccabaeus, and others — allowed the chorus to represent the people, or individual groups or tribes, sometimes very vividly. Messiah is different in this regard, since the chorus represents nameless and numberless subscribers to the Christian faith, and the action, such as it is, is picturesque rather than dramatic. With a text entirely drawn from the Bible, the words are prose, not the verse that was habitually provided for operas and even for biblical oratorios. The telling of the Christmas story, in Part I, requires the chorus to represent the “heaven’ly host” in “Glory to God,” but it involves no conflict. And many details of the story, such as Herod and the Massacre of the Innocents, are omitted. In selecting passages from the Bible, Jennens and Handel preferred to stand back from the story with passages of prophecy or contemplation. This is more pronounced as the work proceeds, with Part II reflecting on (rather than narrating) the Passion of Christ, and his Resurrection and Ascension, culminating in the great shout of Hallelujah.

About the Music

The Cleveland Orchestra


Part III begins with the beautiful aria “I know that my redeemer liveth” and goes on to reflect on the afterlife for us all: “Even so in Christ shall all be made alive.” The trumpet sounds the victory-call over death and we are called upon to “rejoice greatly” at God’s triumph over Original Sin. The solo voices do not represent persons in the story. In fact, Handel’s choice of four solo voices — soprano, alto, tenor, and bass — seems to have been a reflection of the four-part make-up of his chorus. They normally sing alone, although there is one duet (similarly rare in operas), “O death, where is thy sting” in Part III, which neatly reflects the alternation of “O death” and “O grave.” Curiously, Handel’s habit of recycling his own (and sometimes other people’s) earlier music has made very familiar some vocal duets that he wrote many years earlier in Italy. These found their much more famous form in “And he shall purify” (Part I), “His yoke is easy” (end of Part I), and “All we like sheep” (Part II), each of which can be imagined as the alternating exchange of a duet and in which all four parts of the chorus have some spectacular tripping and running that was normally the province of soloists. Taking part in movements such as these is what gives Messiah its eternal appeal to choral singers who never thought they could rise to such virtuosity. Later in the work the chorus has a more weighty role, as for example in the three choruses that run together in Part II (in this version): “Lift up your heads,” “The Lord gave the word,” and “Their sound is gone out.” When trumpets and drums join the chorus and the key moves to D major for “Glory to God” (Part I), Handel displays that festive brilliance which places him above all composers of his time, and indeed of any time. The same celebration marks the Hallelujah! Chorus at the end of Part II and the immense Amen that closes the work. The orchestra is given two spots on its own. The “Sinfonia” that opens the work is a French-style overture in two parts, the first broad and jerky, the second a business-like fugue that leads immediately into the opening recitative. Later in Part I, there is a “Pifa,” often known as the “Pastoral Symphony,” a movement setting the scene for the shepherds abiding in the field. Such movements were usually scored for recorders or flutes, but Handel wrote for strings alone, over long-held bass notes, allowing for other instruments to be added if the occasion arose.

THE CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA

Welser-Möst and Cleveland Orchestra acclaimed throughout European Tour/Vienna Residency Franz Welser-Möst led The Cleveland Orchestra on their sixteenth international concert tour and eighth biennial Vienna Residency together, performing twelve concerts in ten cities between October 15 and 31. The tour featured performances in a number of Europe’s premier concert halls, including their debut performance at the new Philharmonie de Paris. The following excerpts are taken from from reviews and commentary about these concerts: “The Cleveland Orchestra’s sheer virtuosity, the honed precision of its interaction, and the scintillating silver gleam that was once its trademark, are still breathtaking.” —Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, October 19, 2015 “From the famous theme to the most tragic or airy passages, the conductor showed his masterful skill, not leaving out any detail, and transcending each motif. The promise of a very high quality concert was kept, giving the audience the opportunity to hear one of the best American orchestras in Europe.” —Crescendo, October 15, 2015 (Brussels) “Welser-Möst’s uncommonly vivid conducting left no doubt — the interpretation was an argument that this work, as Beethoven said of his “Pastoral,” is more an expression of feeling than a painting. . . . The burst of excitement that followed gave the strings another opportunity to demonstrate their excellence.” —Luxemburger Wort, October 19, 2015 “Without a doubt, the superb Cleveland Orchestra, which prefers roundness to brilliance and never flashy virtuosity, adheres to the approach perfectly. Their Austrian director successfully avoids the trap of going overboard and shows he knows how to conduct the music, from start to finish, making a tight, unified ensemble.” —ConcertoNet, October 22, 2015 (Paris) “The strings and brass provided gleaming opulence, and Welser-Möst played the mountain guide in overdrive. Overall, as was made clear at the Konzerthaus this evening, the musicians from Cleveland can play anything.” —Westfälische Nachrichten Münster-Stadt, October 24, 2015 (Dortmund) “Conductor Franz Welser-Möst also strikes the necessary balance between attack and withdrawal, using timbre to maintain the internal tension. . . . Also key: the orchestra’s clarity and transparency are always present in service of expression. . . . It was a brilliant evening by a great orchestra.” —Der Standard, October 29, 2015 (Vienna)

THE CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA

Orchestra’s next executive director appointed — André Gremillet takes reins in January André Gremillet, managing director of the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, will succeed Gary Hanson as executive director of The Cleveland Orchestra. The appointment was announced by Dennis W. LaBarre, president of the Musical Arts Association, over the summer. At the time of his retirement, Mr. Hanson will have served the institution for more than twenty-seven years, with nearly twelve years in his current position. Gremillet will become executive director at the beginning of January; Hanson will retire in December. In making the appointment, LaBarre said, “André Gremillet has an impressive artistic background, including corporate leadership experience, and has successfully enhanced the fiscal health of two symphony orchestras. I am delighted that André has accepted our offer and I look forward to working with him to extend The Cleveland Orchestra’s strong record of achievement.” “André’s leadership qualities together with his artistic sensibilities are a great match for The Cleveland Orchestra,” stated music director Franz Welser-Möst. “I’m very enthusiastic about our choice. Combining the long-term partnership that the musicians and I already have developed, together with André’s international experience along with the extraordinary support and commitment of the Board of Trustees, will help further develop innovative and thoughtful programming as we look to our centennial in 2018 and build into the Orchestra’s second century.” “I can think of no individual better suited to take the executive reins of The Cleveland Orchestra,” stated Gary Hanson. “I’m confident that André will feel, as I do, that serving this great Orchestra is a true privilege. With his broad experience and record of achievement, André is an ideal leader to pursue ever-greater institutional goals in a time of immense change and challenge for symphony orchestras.” “The Cleveland Orchestra represents the brightest example of what a great orchestra should

Severance Hall 2015-16

be in the 21st century,” said André Gremillet. “It is truly an honor to be appointed its next executive director and to succeed Gary Hanson, who has had a remarkable tenure. I look forward to working with the superb artists that are Franz Welser-Möst and the musicians of the Cleveland Orchestra, as well as with a Board and staff who are leaders in the orchestra world, to extend the Orchestra’s achievement in musical excellence, commitment to community, and financial strength.” André Gremillet has been managing director of the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra since November 2012. During his tenure, the MSO has deepened its engagement with the Melbourne community, resulting in a significant increase in ticket sales and fundraising, and completed a highly successful European Tour. From 2007 to 2012, Gremillet was president and CEO of the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra (NJSO), where his tenure marked a financial turnaround for the organization. Prior to joining the NJSO, Gremillet served for four years as president of the internationally-renowned pipe organ building company Casavant Frères in Québec, Canada. He is a conservatory-trained pianist, holding a master’s degree from the Mannes College of Music and an MBA from McGill University.

The Cleveland Orchestra


orchestra news W.E.L.C.O.M.E Percussionist joins Orchestra with 2015-16 season Thomas Sherwood became the newest member of The Cleveland Orchestra at the start of the musicians’ contract year at the beginning of September. He performed the final weekend of concerts at Blossom, and continues with the new season (he has a previous performing commitment outside Cleveland the week of September 21-26). Prior to being selected by Franz Welser-Möst, Sherwood had served as principal percussion of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra since 1999. He graduated with a bachelor of music in percussion performance from the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana. A student of Tom Siwe, he was the youngest recipient of the Edgard Varèse Memorial Scholarship. He earned his master of

THE CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA

music degree from Temple University, where he studied with Alan Abel (former associate principal percussion of the Philadelphia Orchestra). Prior to joining the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, Sherwood was a member of Miami’s New World Symphony for three seasons. Since 2008, he has been artistic director and percussionist for the contemporary music ensemble, Sonic Generator. He also created and has directed the Modern Snare Drum Competition (an annual event for students from all over the country, which has led to the creation of more than a dozen new pieces for snare drum).

gifts during the past year, as of September 5, 2015

$10 MILLION AND MORE

In celebration of the critical role individuals play in supporting The Cleveland Orchestra each year, donors of $2,500 and more are recognized as members of special Leadership Giving Societies. These societies are named to honor important and inspirational leaders in the Orchestra’s history. The Adella Prentiss Hughes Society honors the Orchestra’s founder and first manager, who from 1918 envisioned an ensemble dedicated to community service, music education, and performing excellence. The George Szell Society is named after the Orchestra’s fourth music director, who served for twenty-four seasons (1946-70) while refining the ensemble’s international reputation for clarity of sound and unsurpassed musical excellence. The Elisabeth DeWitt Severance Society honors not only the woman in whose memory Severance Hall was built, but her selfless sharing, including her insistence on nurturing an orchestra not just for the wealthy but for everyone. The Dudley S. Blossom Society honors one of the Orchestra’s early and most generous benefactors, whose dedication and charm rallied thousands to support and nurture a hometown orchestra toward greatness. The Frank H. Ginn Society honors the man whose judicious management of Severance Hall’s finances and construction created a beautiful and welcoming home for Cleveland’s Orchestra. The 1929 Society honors the vibrant community spirit that propelled 3,000 volunteers and donors to raise over $2 million in a nine-day campaign in April 1929 to meet and match John and Elisabeth Severance’s challenge gift toward the building of the Orchestra’s new concert hall.

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 HAILED AS ONE OF

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 special events each year.

REMINDERS Please disarm electronic watch alarms and turn off all pagers, cell phones, and mechanical devices before entering the concert hall.

To ensure the listening pleasure of all patrons, please note that anyone creating a disturbance may be asked to leave the concert hall.

LATE SEATING Performances at Severance Hall start at the time designated on the ticket. In deference to the comfort and listening pleasure of the audience, late-arriving patrons will not be seated while music is being performed. Latecomers are asked to wait quietly until the first break in the program, when ushers will assist them to their seats. Please note that performances without intermission may not have a seating break. These arrangements are at the discretion of the House Manager in consultation with the conductor and performing artists.

SERVICES FOR PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES Severance Hall provides special seating options for mobility-impaired persons and their companions and families. There are wheelchair- and scooter-accessible locations where patrons can remain in their wheelchairs or transfer to a concert seat. Aisle seats with removable armrests are also available for persons who wish to transfer. Tickets for wheelchair accessible and companion seating can be purchased by phone, in person, or online.

CHILDREN AND FAMILIES Regardless of age, each person must have a ticket and be able to sit quietly in a seat throughout the performance. Cleveland Orchestra subscription concerts are not recommended for children under the age of 8.

UNABLE TO USE YOUR TICKETS? Ticket holders unable to use or exchange their tickets are encouraged to notify the Ticket Office so that those tickets can be resold.

If you return your tickets at least two hours before the concert, the value of each ticket can be a tax-deductible contribution. Patrons who turn back tickets receive a cumulative donation acknowledgement at the end of each calendar year.
