10/14: City Music Cleveland area tour



Music director James Gaffigan takes a break from the City Music Cleveland schedule this week, when guest conductor David Alan Miller (a Los Angeles native and Juilliard grad) takes the podium for a program featuring the world premiere of Christos Hatzis’ Redemption, Mozart’s Serenade in D and Mendelssohn’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream: Suite. Miller was associate conductor of the Los Angeles Philharmonic during the early ’90s and has served as music director of the Albany Symphony Orchestra ever since. Mendelssohn and Mozart’s pieces have a tried-and-true charm, but it’s the brand-new Redemption that will try to win over the audience (it features the Pacifica Quartet in the spotlight as “soloist”). Performances are at 8 tonight at Stambaugh Auditorium (1000 5th Ave., Youngstown, 330.747.5175); 7:30 p.m. tomorrow at Fairmount Presbyterian Church (2757 Fairmount Blvd., Cleveland Heights, 216.321.5800), 8 p.m. Friday at St. Noel Church (35200 Chardon Rd, Willoughby Hills, 440.946.0887), 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Shrine Church of St. Stanislaus, (3649 E. 65th St., 216.341.9091); 2 p.m. Sunday at St. Mary Church (320 Middle Ave., Elyria, 440.323.5539) and 7:30 p.m. Sunday at Rocky River United Methodist Church (19414 Detroit Rd., Rocky River, 440.331.7676).
