Heights Arts presents a series of chamber music concerts in homes and other unique intimate settings for audiences of 60-80 people. Artistic Director Isabel Trautwein, a Cleveland Orchestra violinist, brings colleagues together to select their programs. Advance reservations are a must, as the concerts always sell out.
We also present a variety of music at Heights Arts Gallery and its adjacent minipark.
Sunday, October 27
Location: Downtown Loft
The extraordinary Omni String Quartet, the most accomplished and beautiful young Stars of The Cleveland Orchestra, always sells out fast and amazes our crowds. On the program is a pair of quartet Masterpieces weaving a rich tapestry of music history: Mendelssohn's passionate love quartet Opus 13, written by the boy composer in 1827, was deeply influenced by Beethoven's Late Quartet, Opus 132, completed in 1825 by the dying Master. Explore the connections between the mature Beethoven and the extraordinary talent bursting from the 18 year old Mendelssohn. They will perform at an ultra-modern space with panoramic views of downtown and Lake Erie, located high in the clouds only one wing-flap from Public Square. (fully elevator accessible)
This event is SOLD OUT!
Sunday, February 9
Location: Dunham Tavern
Meet the amazing Mary Lynch, the (very!) young new oboe player who now calls the Second Oboe Chair in The Cleveland Orchestra her musical home. Trained at Juilliard and selected to perform at the prestigious Marlboro Music Festival, Mary has selected an eclectic chamber music program for oboe and strings, including a rarely heard and lyrical masterpiece: the oboe quintet by William Bolcom, one of America's Contemporary master composers. This concert will be held at another of Cleveland's many hidden venues, to be announced.

Sunday, April 13
Location: Herrick Mews Home
Shortly before his death, Beethoven composed six String Quartets, complex masterpieces that are rarely heard due to the extreme demands on the performers. In these revolutionary Late Quartets, a deaf and dying Beethoven sneers at traditional musical forms by breaking all their rules, paving the way for music of the 20th century.
Four spectacularly accomplished members of The Cleveland Orchestra have performed together for over 25 years they will bring to life the monumental and serious Opus 131 String Quartet in c-sharp minor and the nearly cheerful Opus 135 in F-major, the last quartet he composed. "Muss es sein?" Yes, you MUST!
This Concert is SOLD OUT. Please do not purchase tickets below. Our Trio TaPasi concert on June 1st still has tickets available!
Sunday, June 1
Location: Historic Heights Mansion
Franz Schubert wrote one of his greatest masterpieces for an Arpeggione: a strange guitar-cello hybrid. Had he known how beautiful it would sound on a cello, he would surely have changed his mind. Johannes Brahms expressed his feelings of love and unencumbered joy so freely in his Violin Sonata in G Major that you'll want to weep tears of joy. Finally, there is Mendelssohn, who, in his typical rush of passion and virtuosity, composed this tempestuous Trio in c-minor. The performers here are all best friends: Tanya Ell and Isabel Trautwein from The Cleveland Orchestra and Patti Wolf, a tremendous Juilliard and Yale-trained concert pianist who joins us from St. Louis. Enjoy these masterpieces in a historic Heights Mansion.
