3/7: Cleveland Orchestra's Musically Speaking

Posted By on Mon, Mar 1, 2010 at 3:51 PM

Best known for roles on Days of Our Lives and Star Trek: The Next Generation, John de Lancie was born into a musical family — his father was an oboist with the Philadelphia Symphony. He applies that knowledge as host of the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s concert series for children. The Cleveland Orchestra recruits him for this week’s installment of the Musically Speaking series. Lancie’s production about the life and creative process of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is the centerpiece. He wrote the piece and serves as its narrator. Nicholas Pappone plays Mozart, Mark Blum is his father and Marni Mosiman portrays several women in Mozart’s life. After intermission, orchestra members will play Mozart’s Haffner Serenade, with first associate concertmaster Peter Otto making his debut as soloist. Before the program, members of the orchestra will give a free concert of chamber music, starting at 2 p.m. Musically Speaking starts at 3 p.m. at Severance Hall (11001 Euclid Ave., 216.231.1111). Tickets: $20-$110. — Michael Gill
