7/26: Credo Chamber Music Festival



Teaching at some of the area’s best music schools — including Oberlin Conservatory, the Cleveland Institute of Music and the Encore School for Strings in Hudson — has convinced Credo Festival’s artistic director Peter Slowik that the region is a world-class destination for music students. This year, for the festival’s 10th anniversary, students ages 5 to 19 head to Severance Hall for a performance. “I’ve loved seeing how students from around the world flock to the Cleveland-plus area for musical inspiration,” says Slowik. “This is a conscious attempt to connect that excellence with local students at all levels.” The program is long on hits, including Barber’s “Adagio for Strings” and the “Spring” concerto from Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons. Showtime is 3 p.m. at Severance Hall (11001 Euclid Ave., 216.231.1111). Tickets: $15-$25. — Michael Gill
