CYO and Graham Nash June 5th
Legendary singer-songwriter Graham Nash is pleased to announce an evening with Contemporary Youth Orchestra (CYO) for a shared concert on Friday, June 5, 2015. The event will take place at 8:00pm at Severance Hall in Cleveland, Ohio as part of the CYO's Rock the Orchestra Concert Series. Tickets go on sale March 7, 2015 at 10am Eastern Standard Time through www.cyorchestra.org/tickets.
Graham Nash will perform with the 115-member CYO and 65-member Chorus filled with musicians ages 14-18 from 64 school districts throughout Ohio. Nash will be the 15th participant in the Rock The Orchestra series which has featured many notable past performers, including Ben Folds, Jon Anderson (Yes), Styx, Pat Benatar, Jefferson Starship, and Bootsy Collins.
This year, CYO - the only youth orchestra in the country devoted to contemporary music - is celebrating its 20th Anniversary. CYO founding music director Liza Grossman says she sought Graham Nash because 'Graham's passionate voice has supported peace and social justice for decades. His music transcends generations, and the musicians in CYO want to be part of his powerful messages."
