BOP STOP at The Music Settlement is Cleveland's premier listening room: an intimate, acoustically pristine performance venue with sweeping views of Lake Erie.
The Music Settlement is happy to host Artists-In-Residence:
TMS violin faculty Beth Woodside is a violinist with The Cleveland Orchestra.
Dedicated to performing with a high level of quality, skill, innovation and purpose, Inlet Dance Theatre is one of the region’s most exciting professional contemporary dance companies. Inlet utilizes dance to encourage individual personal development through training and mentoring, while exploring the issues of life. Inlet Dance Theatre is housed in Burke Mansion, hosts classes in our Dance Studio, and can be found online here.
The Glenn Holmes Quartet is one of the most in-demand jazz quartets in Cleveland. Led by TMS teaching faculty Glenn Holmes (bass), the quartet is comprised of Holmes, TMS instructor Drene Ivy (piano), Johnny Cochran (saxophone), and Paul Samuels (Drums). They write incredible original music and arrangements of standards. The quartet can often be found performing at BOP STOP at The Music Settlement.
The Gruca White Ensemble was formed in April 2013 as part of The Music Settlement’s Centennial Celebration, and became Artists in Residence for the vibrant Cleveland community music school the following year. Classical Guitarist Robert Gruca and flutist Linda White offer an entirely new concert experience by alternating the best of the flute and guitar repertoire, their own arrangements of Latin, jazz, and rock tunes with a short impromptus: improvised jams in a variety of styles that will make you want to join in. The Gruca White Ensemble is online at http://www.Facebook.com/grucawhiteensemble.
