Described by the Washington Post as “completely engrossing powerful and elegant” The Cavani Quartet has dedicated its artistic life to communicating the joy of discovery in the service of some of the most powerful music ever written.

Accessing the stream is free but donations are encouraged and appreciated and can be made at Tickets to attend this show in person are free but reservations are required and can be made here:



In partnership with some of Cleveland’s most respected organizations, we wish to celebrate the emotional refuge and joyful musical revolution of the Beethoven quartets, by combining forces with some of our most compelling living composers. At the heart of this endeavor, is our mission to share all of these true and masterful works with an audience of school age students who will then join us in a culminating performance on Beethoven’s birthday.

We believe this project illuminates the power of music and art to transcend boundaries and barriers, to offer an artistic sanctuary where equity of voices and diversity of ideas is celebrated. We believe this project fulfills Beethoven’s own wish for a better world and a way to reach, affect and ignite future generations through music.
