ENCORE Chamber Music’s summer festival theme is “La Bohème: Art & Freedom.” The final performance of the group’s six-week international music festival will be presented in Hoover Auditorium. Through their festival program, the young artists present concerts, masterclasses and community events throughout the Cleveland area.

Artistic Director Jinjoo Cho was inspired by the 19th century Bohemian Movement, which disregarded societal conventions for the pursuit of artistry when curating this season.

“Many of these musicians spent their lives in search of musical meaning and freedom,” Cho says. “Bohemia, now Czech Republic, was at the center of Europe where sophisticated high culture and rhapsodic folk spirit married each other and created complex, yet relatable, works of art.”

The program includes a diverse range of classical, romantic and contemporary works with the overarching theme of Bohemian spirit.

The concert features 82 young artists who are selected through an extensive audition process and have traveled to Ohio from all across the U.S., Canada, Ireland, China, Korea and more.

These talented young artists will learn from the biggest names in the field of classical music today. The list of performer-teachers this summer include violinists Paul Kantor (U.S.), Mihaela Martin (Bulgaria/Germany); cellists Frans Helmerson (Germany), Ralph Kirshbaum (U.S./England); and violists Dimitri Murrath (Belgium), Andre Roy (Canada) and Kim Kashkashian (U.S.).

ENCORE Chamber Music, founded by Cho in 2016, is a nonprofit organization aimed at inspiring young musicians to explore their maturing talents. Their mission is “to create the most premiere summer classical musical festival with a community of artists who are dedicated to the next generation of music and to culturally enrich our Northeast Ohio community through the transformative power of classical music.” This will be ENCORE’s third performance in Lakeside.

Cho, a critically-acclaimed violinist and soloist with symphonies around the world, has established herself as one of the most vibrant and charismatic violinists of her generation. Lakesiders may recognize Cho from her exceptional performances with the Lakeside Symphony Orchestra.
