Euclid Symphony Orchestra Pops with Flavor

Youth Concert Audience

Move over Tchaikovsky. Step aside Brahms. The Euclid Symphony Orchestra is swapping out their classical pieces in favor of upbeat, fast-moving favorites for their annual Pops Concert on Sunday, May 5, 2013, 3 p.m., at Shore Cultural Centre’s auditorium. This audience-friendly concert is a crowd-pleaser and will be sure to strike a chord with those who are in attendance.

Included in this performance will be highlights from West Side Story, a tribute to Henry Mancini, Fiddler on the Roof, and The Stars and Stripes Forever. Additionally, concert-goers have been able to place their votes for a choice of one of  their favorites –Pirates of the Carribean or Phantom of the Opera  - which will be played at the concert. The winner? Phantom of the Opera.

If you have not yet experienced The Euclid Symphony Orchestra, do your soul a favor and come and witness the wonderful sounds of this volunteer orchestra that is located right here in our community.

Concert tickets are $8 in advance, and $10 at the door. Advance sale tickets can be purchased at the Shore Cultural Centre main office, 291 East 222nd St., Euclid. For more information about the ESO, please visit our website at or call Shore Cultural Centre at (216.289.8578).

The members of ESO are also preparing for another annual favorite, their Youth Concerts that will be performed on Thursday, May 16, 2013. All Euclid schools, private or public, are welcome to these exciting educational programs. Last year’s concerts were a smashing success with over 1,000 students in attendance. 

This one-day event has  two morning concerts for students in grades 3-6 and the same, large crowd is anticipated again this year.  Any home-schooled students that wish to attend should send a note to our address (listed above) by May 1, 2013 and we will contact you with ticket information.

The ESO members have a passion for music and want to share this experience with the young people in the Euclid area schools. There have been countless studies proving the positive effect of music on the human brain and for many young people these concerts will be their only exposure to the wonderful world of classical music. For some, it may open and inspire a whole new world!
