In its 15th season, the Credo Festival brings top young musicians from around the world to the Cleveland area to intensively study chamber music. This year, approximately 100 musicians will end the 4-week program of performances with an orchestral concert at Severance Hall. The Credo Season Finale Concert will be held on July 20th at 7pm and will feature such favorites as Rossini’s William Tell Overture, Holst’s St. Paul Suite, and Dvorak’s 8th Symphony.
Equally important to Credo’s mission as the music is the emphasis placed on service to others. Students and faculty go out into the community each week to perform at such places as area nursing homes, inner city youth settings, and hospitals, and they also do manual labor at food banks, homeless programs, and parks.
The July 20th closing concert is paired with a final opportunity for service. Students and families from music and social service programs throughout the Cleveland area are invited to attend the Credo Festival Concert at Severance Hall at no cost to them. The families will hear a glorious finale concert in one of the most famous and beautiful concert halls in the world. Well over 200 children and families will join us from the Northern Ohio Youth Orchestra, The Cleveland Music Settlement, Joyful Noise Music School, Boys & Girls Club of Cleveland, Ronald McDonald House, Oberlin Community Music, the Rainey Institute, and others.
