I am so excited for tonight. Some friends and I are going to celebrate my birthday with dinner on East 4th and a Cleveland Orchestra performance on Public Square. The program is to feature pieces by Bernstein, Copland, and Gershwin, music from Star Wars, and a Salute to the Armed Forces, with special guest soloist, Cleveland’s own Grammy-nominated violinist Caroline Goulding. The evening will end with fireworks and Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture. Here is an interview and performance with Goulding if you’re interested.
