About The Event

Expanding a collaborative partnership with our neighbors down the road, CMA welcomes the Oberlin Contemporary Music Ensemble for a series of compelling programs under the baton of Tim Weiss. Oberlin Conservatory, long a wellspring of contemporary classical music and the birthplace of award-winning chamber groups such as Eighth Blackbird and the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE), is a treasure in the Northeast Ohio region—in no small part due to the ambitions and success of Weiss. He is the recipient of the Adventurous Programming Award from the American Symphony Orchestra League, and in his 19 years as music director of the Oberlin Contemporary Music Ensemble has brought the group to a level of artistry and virtuosity in performance that rivals the finest new music groups.
