2011 Cleveland Orchestra musicians complete first IU Residency with organ and brass program

The Cleveland Orchestra IU Residency chamber concert in Auer Hall at the IU Jacobs School of Music concluded the third day of an intensive immersion on campus.

The concert began with Gabrieli’s Canzon for 12 in Double Echo – the centerpiece being the new Maidee H. and Jackson A. Seward Organ, installed and dedicated last year. Cleveland Orchestra principal keyboardist Joela Jones was flanked by Orchestra musicians, along with IU faculty and students.

Other works on the program included showcases for trombone and trumpet by Massimo La Rosa and Michael Sachs, accompanied by Joela Jones, and organ solos of Janáček and Ives. The brass chamber group concluded the concert with another Gabrieli work, Canzon per sonar No. 2.

Earlier in the day, Joela worked with organ students and Richard King taught a session on orchestral performance for French horn. Richard welcomed to the class Myron Bloom (pictured above), the former Principal Horn of The Cleveland Orchestra, who became a faculty member at IU.

Over the course of the three-day residency, over 3,000 people attended the thirty events.
