Mendelssohn's Scottish Symphony

When: Sun., Aug. 7 2016

German Romantic composer, pianist and conductor Felix Mendelssohn left behind quite a legacy. Among his many accomplishments, he wrote his Overture to A Midsummer Night’s Dream, one of his best-known works, at the age of 17, and founded the Leipzig Conservatory of Music in 1843. Under the direction of conductor Nicholas McGegan, the Cleveland Orchestra pays tribute to him tonight and plays his Symphony No. 3 (“Scottish”). The orchestra will also play Haydn’s Symphony No. 99 and Arthur Benjamin’s Divertimento on Themes by Gluck. The concert begins at 7 p.m. at Blossom. Tickets start at $24. (Niesel)
