September Serenade

September 20, 2020

September Serenade

Picture an early fall evening, relaxing with a glass of wine in the serene surroundings of Lake View Cemetery, a crisp, steady breeze in the trees above and melodies played by world class musicians floating through the air. Such was the scene when Lake View Cemetery partnered with musicians of The Cleveland Orchestra for “September Serenade”, on Sunday, September 20, 2020.

In a landscape of cancellations and postponements across the cultural calendar, Lake View Cemetery was proud to be approached by musicians of The Cleveland Orchestra, to explore the possibilities for bringing forth this very special event.

To entertain while still honoring social distancing, three intimate gatherings, hosted by three different families, were held in locations with meaningful connections to the hosts as well as to The Cleveland Orchestra. They performed at the grave sites of John L. Severance (Severance Hall) and of Dudley S. Blossom (Blossom Music Center) and the Bolton Family, and at the lot of Kathy and Bill O’Neill, future residents of Lake View. Guests were treated to a string quartet, a quintet of clarinet and strings, and a bluegrass ensemble.

It was noted how humbled the musicians felt playing at the sites of these Cleveland luminaries who are so paramount to the rich history of the orchestra. “For over 100 years, The Cleveland Orchestra has forged deep ties with the Cleveland community. And this year, the connection we share through music is more important than ever. I’m delighted that Clevelanders were able to enjoy a special evening with Orchestra musicians in a storied setting like Lake View,” said President and CEO of The Cleveland Orchestra André Gremillet.

We are deeply grateful to our host families; Julie & Charlie Bolton, Betsy Juliano, Kathy & Bill O’Neill, and Meredith & Michael Weil.
