Free Admission

Classical Revolution Cleveland performs dozens of free, public events each year, with a core mission of taking classical music off of the “high art” pedestal and presenting dynamic performances in non-traditional spaces. Comprised of a multi-faceted roster of some of northeast Ohio’s top independent professionals, Classical Revolution Cleveland has given free monthly performances at The Happy Dog for nearly a decade, along with countless pop-up shows and special events. The ensemble has also been featured in programming on Ideastream, Cleveland’s PBS/NPR affiliate, and onstage in Mixon Hall at The Cleveland Institute of Music. Their concert series, JOIN, provides monthly concerts to audiences without access to the arts, including correctional facilities, crisis shelters, low-income community centers, and the VA hospital.
