Soloist Hits the High Notes

When: Sun., April 3 2011

Since 1973, the Cleveland Philharmonic Orchestra has made an annual tradition of bestowing upon one young Ohio musician the honor of performing with the Orchestra as a soloist. Today, that honor goes to Michael Ferri, a 15-year-old violinist studying at the Cleveland Institute of Music. Originally from Treviglio, Italy, Ferri began his studies at the age of 3 and has already stacked up a slew of honors, including the Jack Kent Cooke Young Artist Award from NPR's From the Top. (Meantime, what's your kid got going on tonight? SpongeBob marathon?) Today's performance, including works by Brahms, Ravel, and Beethoven, also features guest conductor Dr. Birch Browning from Cleveland State University. Tickets for the 3 p.m. concert are $10 for adults, with discounts for seniors and students. It's happening in the Western Campus Theater of Cuyahoga Community College, 11000 West Pleasant Valley Rd. in Parma. For more information, call 216-556-1800 or visit — Bill Delaney
