About Lunchtime with The Cleveland Orchestra
Through our continuing partnership with The Cleveland Orchestra, Ideastream Public Media is presenting "Lunchtime with The Cleveland Orchestra," available on radio and online streaming every weekday, immediately after BBC News at Noon.
These hour-long daily presentations will include selections from the ensemble’s recording and concert history, accompanied by a brief overview of the featured music and more.
The Cleveland Orchestra and WCLV, two longtime Northeast Ohio cultural institutions, recognize the value and importance of the arts — especially in helping people across our shared community persevere through trying times. As a result, the Orchestra and Ideastream Public Media are offering a daily dose of musical nourishment by broadcasting this series of weekday programs featuring highlights from past Cleveland Orchestra concerts and recordings.
All selections conducted by Franz Welser-Möst, unless otherwise indicated.
