The region’s only chamber music festival has ended but WCLV is pleased to be broadcasting a number of its concerts in a series to be heard on consecutive Sunday nights from 7 to 9 p.m. each week through July 21st.  ChamberFest Cleveland was founded in 2012 by Franklin Cohen, then the principal clarinet with the Cleveland Orchestra, and his daughter Diana Cohen, concertmaster of the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra.  The Cohens were guests on Eric Kisch’s program, "Musical Passions," on Sunday, June 23rd.  (A short excerpt is above.)   Inspired by the wealth of fine music making in Cleveland and lifetimes of traveling to music festivals, their vision was to create a chamber music event of international stature.  Since its launch it has become an annual mecca for unique chamber music experiences taking place in a variety of Cleveland venues.  ChamberFest has come a long way in accomplishing its stated mission, “To nurture a deep family-like connection between musicians and audiences of all ages.” 

Known for its thematic programming, this year’s festival, Under the Influence, presents concerts of music grouped in a number of enticing categories, as the program names suggest.
