2016–17 Performing Arts Series
The CMA’s award-winning Performing Arts Series brings together thoughtful, fascinating and beautiful experiences, comprising a concert calendar notable for its boundless multiplicity. Highlights of this season include the century-spanning program of viol consort Fretwork that juxtaposes the old and new, and the presentation of Radhe, Radhe: Rites of Holi by composer and MacArthur “genius grant” winner Vijay Iyer and International Contemporary Ensemble that will complement the centennial exhibition Art and Stories from Mughal India.
This season also features a four-concert series by the Oberlin Contemporary Music Ensemble, organ recitals by Jean-Baptiste Monnot and Emmanuel Arakélian, a film series honoring composer Philip Glass on the occasion of his 80th birthday, and Cleveland premieres by noted vocal groups Quince and The Crossing. The museum also welcomes violinist Francesco D’Orazio and cellist Jeffrey Ziegler for solo concerts at Transformer Station. In the spring Frode Haltli and Emilia Amper present Grenseskogen (The Border Woods), a new work rooted in Nordic folksong, and harpist Brandee Younger plays the music of Alice Coltrane.
