February 4, 11 am – 1 pm: Cello Masterclass with Maestro Klaus Mäkelä

In collaboration with The Cleveland Orchestra, the CCS is very excited to announce a  cello masterclass by Finnish conductor Klaus Mäkelä during his guest conducting engagement with The Cleveland Orchestra in February 2023.  Recently described in the NY Times as “.  .  . perhaps the fastest-rising conductor of his generation,” Mäkelä currently is the Music Director of the Oslo Philharmonic and Orchestre de Paris as well as Artistic Partner of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in Amsterdam. Did you know Klaus Mäkelä studied both conducting and cello at the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki?  As a cellist, he has collaborated with many Finnish orchestras and has performed chamber music across the globe, playing a Giovanni Grancino from 1698.  Don’t miss this rare opportunity to gain new cello insights as Maestro Mäkelä works with four rising-star cello students.

Tickets: Free, but registration is required.   Beginning on January 15, 2023, reservations can be made on the Cleveland Orchestra website.  The link will be posted January 15 at 9 AM.
