​Earth and Air: String Orchestra

David B. Ellis,   Executive and Artistic Director

​​​​​​Earth and Air: String Orchestra is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts service organization. Contributions for the charitable purposes of Earth and Air: String Orchestra must be made payable to Fractured Atlas only and are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.

Earth and Air: String Orchestra is dedicated to the exploration and performance of music featuring the large string ensemble, engaging talented musicians from and providing concerts for audiences in Cleveland and Northeast Ohio. We specialize in music ranging from the 19th to the 21st Centuries.  While we enjoy the comfort of some familiar composers, much of our time is dedicated to exciting, accessible new music and rarely performed works.  Our core is the string family, enhanced by guest artists on a variety of instruments. The repertoire for string orchestra is vast and in some cases unfamiliar, so our goal is to uncover and share these new musical experiences.  We strive to provide a lively professional opportunity to highly qualified performers and composers and a meaningful concert experience for our audiences.

Directed by David B. Ellis, Earth and Air: String Orchestra is based in Cleveland, Ohio.
