Sign Up For PORCHestra!
Make music Lakewood! PORCHestra, an afternoon of music on Lakewood’s front porches sponsored by Charter One, takes place on Sunday, May 18, beginning at 4 p.m. The Cleveland Orchestra encourages you to join with family, friends and neighbors, by playing or singing on your front porch in this community-wide, free “jam session.”
The afternoon of music making will culminate with an outdoor concert on the front porch of the downtown Lakewood Public Library at 5:15 p.m. with performances by The Cleveland Orchestra Youth Chorus Chamber Ensemble followed by members of The Cleveland Orchestra performing double-bass quartets and violin/viola duets.
Register your porch at www.clevelandorchestra.com/PORCHestra. Each participating registrant will receive two free tickets to a Cleveland Orchestra Blossom concert this summer. Participating porches will be part of a Google map indicating the “musical” porches and neighborhood performances. Regardless of your age or talent level, join the fun and make Lakewood come alive with the sound of music!
Of special note: In early May, volunteers from the Orchestra and Charter One will repair and paint two front porches in partnership with LakewoodAlive.
