Have you ever seen orchestra music performed in a meat market, a coffee shop, an ice cream parlor or at a tavern?
It's happening this week as members of the internationally-recognized Cleveland Orchestra are performing at numerous non-traditional venues in the Detroit Shoreway neighborhood of Cleveland's near west side.
It's all part of the inaugural "neighborhood residency" of the orchestra, officially termed, The Cleveland Orchestra "At Home in Gordon Square".
"We look forward to making this an annual event and being 'at home' in many more northeast Ohio neighborhoods," said Cleveland Orchestra Executive Director Gary Hanson.
The week-long series of performances will be highlighted by a full Cleveland Orchestra concert at St. Coleman's Catholic Church, 2027 West 65th St., on Thursday at 7:30 p.m.
The St. Coleman's concert is free, but a ticket is required. All other events are also free to the public.
