Alisa Weilerstein – November 8
(Note: Ali is playing with the Cleveland Orchestra November 6 and 8.)
In 1985 The Young Artist Program was initiated at the Cleveland Institute of Music
and Ali Weilerstein was a participant. The cellist made her debut with The Cleveland Orchestra
in 1995 when she was only 13 years old and has gone on to perform with almost every
major orchestra in the world. Ali shares her music- making and stories of growing up
as the daughter of Donald and Vivian Weilerstein - with you.

Lera Auerbach – November 15
Lera Auerbach has composed more than 100 scores that are performed
around the world. She was named Poet of the Year by the International Pushkin Society,
she was named a “Young Global Leader” by the World Economic forum. She is a pianist, a
painter and a sculptor. If the arts are a language that can convey a message or emotion,
it can be said that Lera Auerbach speaks many of those languages fluently.

Isabel Trautwein -November 22
Trautwein believes in bringing music to the community
and is a member of the first violin section of The Cleveland Orchestra.
In September of 2011, she partnered with the Rainey Institute in Cleveland
to launch an intensive after-school music program, El Sistema at Rainey.
El Sistema, “the system,” was founded 35 years ago in Venezuela
to bring the power of music into the lives of children.

Vivian Horneck Weilerstein– December 6th
Vivian Hornik Weilersteins’s destiny may have been
to become a member of a piano trio. She is a pianist who married a violinist
and raised a daughter who has become one of the top cellists in the world.
Vivian went from playing as a successful soloist to forming the highly acclaimed Weilerstein Trio.
Hear about her journey from working as one, to two to three and how she’s guiding other piano trios
to reach new levels of performance this week on Offbeat.

Vinson Cole – December 13
A conversation with American tenor Vinson Cole
who is internationally recognized as one of the leading artists of his generation.
His career has taken him to all of the major opera houses across the globe -
from the Metropolitan Opera and Opera National de Paris Bastille
to Teatro alla Scala Milan and the Vienna State Opera, among many others.

Daedalus Quartet – December 20th
The string quartet performance legacy has been passed down
from one generation to the next. The Daedalus Quartet is part of a new generation
of successful string quartets. The New Yorker called them, “An exceptionally refined young ensemble
with a translucent sound.” Violinists Min-Young Kim and Matilda Kaul from the Daedalus Quartet
fill listeners in on their journey as a string quartet founded in the 21st century this week on Offbeat.
