4/11: Cleveland Women’s Orchestra at Severance Hall

Posted By on Tue, Apr 6, 2010 at 12:55 PM

The Cleveland Women’s Orchestra is a relic from an era of musical apartheid, when symphonic music was men’s work, and most women didn’t get a chance to play in symphonies. Those days are long gone. The CWO marks its 75th anniversary today with a concert that looks forward and backward. The program includes the premiere of a new commissioned work, a concerto performed by a rising star and a taste of Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake for dessert. The premiere — Margaret Brouwer’s “Path at Sunrise, Masses of Flowers” — opens the show, followed by violinist Jinjoo Cho, a Cleveland Institute of Music student who’s performed with a slew of ensembles, including the Cleveland Orchestra. She’ll play the Beethoven violin concerto, which features one of the most memorable motifs in the concerto repertoire. Robert Cronquist conducts. Showtime is 3:30 p.m. at Severance Hall (11001 Euclid Ave., 216.231.1111). Tickets: $10-$35. — Michael Gill
