CityMusic Cleveland Chamber Orchestra Names Avner Dorman as Music Director

Congratulations to ASCAP member and composer Avner Dorman, who was appointed as the new Music Director of CityMusic Cleveland Chamber Orchestra on Tuesday, May 28th, 2013. Dorman’s tenure will be through June 2016.

In October 2013, he will make his first appearance as the orchestra’s second music director. His appointment coincides with the upcoming celebration of CityMusic Cleveland’s 10th Anniversary Season.

The 38-year–old Dorman, a native of Israel, stated, "I am very excited to be selected as Music Director of CityMusic Cleveland. I really admire the mission of this chamber orchestra, through the offering of free concert opportunities for listeners of all ages, and also how they have provided opportunities for living composers like myself to be heard and involved in programming. My goals are to create beautiful performances for the Cleveland community to enjoy, to expose more Cleveland school children to orchestral music, and possibly to record some of my own works with this orchestra in the future."
