Music for Miles

Blue Water String Octet at Waterloo Arts on May 10

Come early to the Music for Miles concert in May – the Blue Water String Octet is the largest group we’ve hosted, and it will be performing the sumptuous Octet for Double String Quartet by Felix Mendelssohn. Parents with children, especially, are invited to arrive early to watch the players warming up, and learn how musicians prepare for performance. (Also, there will be cupcakes.)

The ensemble, with four violins, two violas, and two cellos (all members of the Blue Water Chamber Orchestra) will also be playing a Divertimento for Strings by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

Blue Water Chamber Orchestra is a group of local world-class musicians committed to bringing exciting and unusual music directly into the neighborhoods ofNortheast Ohio. Carlton R. Woods, founder and Artistic Director, has collaborated with such artists and composers as Itzhak Perlman, Sarah Chang, Dave Brubeck, and the Juilliard String Quartet.
