About BlueWater Chamber Orchestra

BlueWater Chamber Orchestra is a refreshingly unique professional ensemble dedicated to sharing great music with new audiences in metropolitan Cleveland, Ohio. Through engaging performances and community education, the group is reaching out to listeners via neighborhood-based programs that bring classical music directly to their doors. Critics have acknowledged BlueWater as “essential contributors to Cleveland’s classical music scene” and acclaim “the brilliance and professionalism that has become a trademark of Blue Water’s performances.” Founded in 2010, BlueWater is in residence at the beautiful Breen Center for the Performing Arts at Saint Ignatius High School, near downtown. This remarkable partnership unites experienced professional musicians with students and the near west community for exciting performances and individual musical instruction. An ongoing relationship with Plymouth Church in Shaker Heights also brings performances directly into the eastern suburbs. BlueWater musicians often diversify into smaller ensembles to present chamber music concerts in schools and neighborhoods throughout the region. Committed to welcoming new audiences while serving established chamber music aficionados, BlueWater celebrates the luminous world of inspiring chamber orchestra music.
