CYO performs 3-4 concerts each Season featuring contemporary orchestral works such as Jennifer Higdon’s Fanfare Ritmico, Valerie Coleman’s Umoja and world premieres by composers like Judd Greenstein and Pascal LeBoeuf. Each year, CYO also performs our iconic Rock the Orchestra concert with a notable guest artist. Recent guests have included Jason Mraz, Chris Thile, Kenny Loggins and Cleveland’s own Michael Stanley.
Join us for a celebration of Brazilian music when Cleveland-based singer/songwriter, Luca Mundaca rocks the orchestra! A gifted artist with a stunning voice of great intimacy and emotion, Luca’s music is a glorious blend of her native Brazil with a touch of downtown New York. She mines deep melodic roots in her country’s heritage, creating musical gems that she polishes with the lightest of touches. Influenced by samba and bossa nova, themes in her songs often revolve around nature and our relationship with it.
