About Lunchtime with The Cleveland Orchestra
Through our continuing partnership with The Cleveland Orchestra, Ideastream Public Media is presenting a new series, "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 interviews with Cleveland Orchestra Music Director, Franz Welser-Möst and Cleveland Orchestra musicians.
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.
