Seasonal Special Happenings

Nature Calls

When: Thu., May 28 2015

A nature lover who frequently hiked in the Vienna countryside, Beethoven wrote his “Pastoral,” to capture “the rolling of thunder, a joyous country dance, and the calling of a shepherd’s pipes.” Franz Welser-Möst conducts the Cleveland Orchestra as it plays the piece. The orchestra will also perform Strauss’ Symphonia Domestica. The concert begins at 7:30 at Severance Hall. Arrive an hour early to hear “Creative Spaces,” a pre-concert talk, with Meaghan Heinrich, the Cleveland Orchestra’s education and community programs advisor. The orchestra will be back tomorrow night at Severance to play Dvorák and two spiritual works by Olivier Messiaen. Tickets start at $29. (Niesel)
