Leonard Bernstein: The Power of Music is the first large-scale museum exhibition to illustrate Leonard Bernstein’s life, Jewish identity, and social activism. Audiences may be familiar with many of Bernstein’s works, notably West Side Story, but not necessarily with how he responded to the political and social crises of his day. Visitors will find an individual who expressed the restlessness, anxiety, fear, and hope of an American Jew living through World War II and the Holocaust, Vietnam, and turbulent social change—what Bernstein referred to as his “search for a solution to the 20th-century crisis of faith."

Gamelan Çudamani, a traditional Balinese music and dance ensemble
7:30 - 9 PM
Simon and Rose Mandel Theatre
Tri-C Eastern Campus.
4250 Richmond Rd., Highland Hills, OH 44122

Gamelan Çudamani traces its roots to the 1970’s when the children of Pengosekan, Ubud, Bali — a village well known for its community of painters, weavers, and musicians — gathered after school to play music in the village balai (pavilion). Over the years the children formed a new kind of organization that has become a pride of the village. They perform a diverse repertoire with astonishing technical precision and high collective spirit.

Dances include the classic legong, rare pieces in the Kebyar genre, and new choreography. The dancers’ graceful bodies mirror every musical nuance of the gamelan as they bring vivid tales of Balinese mythology and history to life. Of significance is the set of instruments used by Çudamani — the semarandana. The group’s technical accomplishments are unparalleled and their dedication to Balinese traditional values are their hallmark.

General admission is $22 . Students can access $5 tickets by using code 1STU and Tri-C students can access free tickets by using code CCCSTU

Lalit Subramanian
4:30 PM
Milton and Tamar Maltz Performing Arts Center
1855 Ansel Rd,

“Music of South India” is a performance rooted in the rich tradition of South Indian Classical Music, also known as Carnatic Music. This form of Classical Music is an expression of the ancient heritage of India through its rich repertoire of compositions created over many centuries. Although the origin of the grammar of Carnatic Music can be traced back to as long ago as 200 BCE through ancient texts, this form of music has evolved over many centuries through contribution by many great composers and performers and has thus exists today as a beautiful confluence of the historical, the ancestral, and the personal. Carnatic Music has two main aspects, namely, composed music and improvised music. A typical Carnatic Music concert is an aesthetic synthesis of these two aspects, keeping the performance fresh, dynamic, and exciting. “Music of South India” will take the audience through a journey of the sounds of Carnatic Music, comprising of the performance of a repertoire of various old and new Carnatic compositions, as well as the application of extempore improvisation in the context of these compositions. This will be performed by a typical Carnatic Music ensemble consisting of a vocalist, a violinist, and a drummer. The performance will be peppered with interesting commentary on each piece.

Cleveland Mannerchor
4515 State Rd.

Join us for some German conversation at our biweekly Stammtisch! It is a casual, drop-in atmosphere, with plenty of opportunities to meet and talk with others. We have all levels of proficiency, from native speakers to those just starting to learn – we’re a friendly bunch and would love to have you join us! The plan is to hold a Stammtisch every two weeks at the same time and same place, so if you can't make it this time, keep an eye open for the next one! Every other Saturday starting at 2 pm we will utilize our German to whatever degree we are able - we usually have a advanced and beginners group depending on how many persons participate.

The Mystical Arts of Tibet
7:30 PM -- 9:00 PM
Milton and Tamar Maltz Performing Arts Center
1855 Ansel Rd,

Ancient societies throughout the world conceived that ritual performance of sacred music and dance at auspicious times establishes communication with the higher powers of good and brings about healing on environmental, social and personal levels. In Tibet, whenever a monastery celebrated a spiritual festival, people from the surrounding villages and nomadic tribes would assemble in the monastery’s courtyard for the three or four days of sacred music and dance. The Mystical Arts of Tibet tour is designed as a development of this tradition. The presentation has been streamlined in such a way as to maintain the essential integrity and purpose of each of the individual pieces in the celebration. Tibetan sacred music and dance was not composed in a mundane manner. Rather, each piece was born centuries ago from a mystical visionary experience of a great saint or sage and has been transmitted from generation to generation in an unbroken oral legacy.
