Mr. Cohen and Mr. Skorka will perform several of the last works by famed composers such as Mozart and Schubert. The selected pieces were written with death on the horizon, and audience members will be taken on a musical journey that explores this creative expression of destiny and mortality.
Mr. Cohen and Mr. Skorka are sure to provide an unforgettable concert experience. Applauded by the Cleveland Plain Dealer for performances that are “dreamy, impassioned and achingly beautiful”, Mr. Cohen is the longest-service principal clarinet in orchestra history. Mr. Skorka is currently a doctoral student at the Cleveland Institute of Music, who has won a number of competitions in Israel and appeared as a soloist with many orchestras in Israel, including the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra.
Located in the heart of Cleveland’s Gordon Square Arts District, the Near West Theatre is the location for this year’s fundraiser concert. All proceeds benefit the Cleveland Psychoanalytic Center and will support the Center in providing mental health services and programming to our Northeast Ohio community.
