C o n c e r t s   November 16th Premier

Earth and Air: String Orchestra is excited to announce a special two-part concert broadcast Thankfulness in Solitude and Thankfulness in Solitude: Music for Home with our own David Ellis performing solo cello.

Thankfulness in Solitude is a two-part project featuring compositions by Margi Griebling-Haigh, Jeffrey Mumford, and Ryan Charles Ramer, three Cleveland-based contemporary composers. This project aims to give back to the community during this time where most of us are left practicing and performing in solitude.

This performance, along with dialogues with the composers, will be premiering November 16th on our Youtube Channel and will be available to watch for a limited time afterwards. Make sure to subscribe to our channel as well as our Facebook page to keep up to date with this performance.
