The Cleveland Institute of Music is pleased to be participating once again in University Circle's joyous seasonal festival Holiday Circlefest.
On Sunday, December 2, University Circle institutions present family-friendly events featuring music, shopping, food, exhibits and, of course, lots of holiday cheer.
Bundle up and walk the Circle to explore and enjoy the various activities or hop on the trolley, just be sure to hop off at East Boulevard and Hazel Drive to take in the sounds of the season at CIM and enjoy festive happenings at our neighbor's place, the Western Reserve Historical Society. The CIM Harp Ensemble will perform excerpts from Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker Suite in Mixon Hall with a special guest ballerina. This year, the CIM Orchestra will add Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf to the festive holiday music mix. CIM Carolers will bring in the holiday spirit and our "Yuleing Tubas" add some hefty holiday cheer as well.
After Circlefest wraps up, consider heading back to CIM for our Intensive String Quartet Seminar Gala Concert, "Magical Mendelssohn," at 6PM. The concert features the six complete quartets of Felix Mendelssohn and the finale of his octet. (See cim.edu for details.)
