A Collaboration with the
Cleveland Classical Guitar Society


Jason Vieaux joins BlueWater Chamber Orchestra and Artistic Director Daniel Meyer in performances of two divergent works for solo guitar with string orchestra. The Vivaldi Concerto in D, RV 93 is a beloved masterpiece from the 17th century, while Israeli composer Avner Dorman’s concerto How to Love for guitar and strings resonates deeply with our times. The program concludes with Beethoven’s joyful Symphony No. 7.

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

Committed to welcoming new audiences while serving established chamber music aficionados, BlueWater celebrates the luminous world of inspiring chamber orchestra music. Under the leadership of Artistic Director Daniel Meyer we’re conducting an 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.

From Cleveland. For Cleveland.
