Event and Artist Info:

Classical Revolution Cleveland was born in 2009. The mission of Classical Revolution Cleveland is to present high quality live chamber music performances in highly accessible venues, such as bars and cafes, and collaborating with local musicians and artists from various styles and backgrounds.

The Classical Revolution Cleveland is comprised with a collective musicians who are current students, alums and faculty members of some of the nation's best conservatories - The Cleveland Institute of Music, The Julliard School, Curtis Institute of Music and the Eastman School of Music. We push the others who are accomplished non-professional musicians that use CRC as an outlet to maintain their musical life while working non-musical jobs. Local groups such as the Trepanning Trio, Edgewater Brass Quintet, Revolution Brass and Anime Duo have appeared on the CRC's stage. The CRC was pleased to featured performances by the 2012 Colman Chamber Competition 1st Prize and the Fischoff Bronze winner ensemble - Ariadne String Quartet.

This inter-relation between professional and non-professional musicians is a fundamental part of our organization: dissolving boundaries that result from the specialization of musicians and bringing people, both audience and performers, together.

2011-2012 was a busy season for CRC. The Cleveland Orchestra members, such as Joela Jones, Joshua Smith, Richard Weiss, and more... shared the stage with musicians of the CRC at the Happy Dog. A night of "All 21st Century Music" featured a dynamic percussion duo from Sweden and the CutTime Simfonica, led by the former Bassist of Detroit Symphony Orchestra, Rick Robinson. The Classical Revolution Cleveland was also featured in the TedxCleveland 2012 Conference.

By taking chamber music out of the recital hall and making it more accessible to an audience who does not otherwise hear such music in a live context, we hope to bring to a broader public consciousness the realization that this music is still relevant and needn't be restricted to more austere venues.
