BlueWater Chamber Orchestra 10th Anniversary

Our appreciation for your loyal support cannot be overstated. Without you, BlueWater is unable to bring Greater Cleveland the dynamic musical experiences we’ve become known for. And we have big things in store for 2020 — with Daniel Meyer at the helm, an exciting new era of creativity has begun.

Saint-Georges: Symphonie Concertante in G Major, Op. 13
Beethoven: “Ah, Perfido!”
Mozart: Symphony No. 40 in g minor 

The 18th century comes to life with renowned works by the two most eminent composers of the era. Soprano Laura Pedersen returns to sing Beethoven’s dramatic concert aria, while the orchestra performs Mozart’s penultimate symphony. The concert begins with a work for two violins by Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges. Known as “the black Mozart,” he was every bit as famous in that epoch, acclaimed for his excellence with both the fiddle and the sword. | Find out more »

BlueWater Chamber Orchestra is committed to expanding the boundaries of what a chamber orchestra can be.

Under the leadership of Artistic Director Daniel Meyer we’re beginning a new era of lively creative performance and educational experiences. Reaching out to listeners via neighborhood-based programs that bring classical music directly to their doors, we perform at various venues across the region.

Committed to welcoming new audiences while serving established chamber music aficionados, BlueWater celebrates the luminous world of inspiring chamber orchestra music.
