Led by veteran theater director and professor Joe Garry, Broadway Buzz Pre-Show Talks offer behind-the-scenes insight into the shows that make up the KeyBank Broadway Series at PlayhouseSquare.
Since 1989, WCLV has presented a series of live broadcasts featuring the faculty and students of The Cleveland Institute of Music. The broadcasts originate from Kulas Hall, Mixon Hall and Severance Hall. Scripts for the broadcast series are written by students in Robert Conrad’s Broadcast Procedures class at CIM.
Cleveland Chamber Music Society Concerts
For 60 years, the Cleveland Chamber Music Society has been presenting concerts for Cleveland audiences. The organization began modestly in 1949 when three friends at Western Reserve University persuaded the renowned Budapest String Quartet to give one concert in Cleveland. The Cleveland Chamber Music Society was incorporated in 1950 and has evolved into one of today’s most esteemed presenting organizations.
Metropolitan Opera Broadcasts
Launched in 1931, the Metropolitan Opera’s Saturday matinee broadcasts are the longest-running continuous classical music program in radio history. The 83rd season begins on December 7, 2013, with Verdi’s Rigoletto, starring Dmitri Hvorostovsky, Matthew Polenzani, and Sonya Yoncheva, continuing the celebration of Verdi’s 200th birthday. Twenty-three broadcasts will be presented on the Toll Brothers–Metropolitan Opera International Radio Network through May 10, 2014. Margaret Juntwait returns as the series’s host, joined by commentator Ira Siff.
Offbeat from CIM
Saturdays at 11:00 a.m., CIM’s unique radio show, Offbeat, celebrates its 10th season, providing an entertaining combination of interesting guests, slightly off-the-wall commentary and a lively behind-the-scenes tour of classical music. The show is hosted by Cavani String Quartet cellist Merry Peckham.
