The Ohio Philharmonic Orchestra is an entirely new ensemble that debuted with a free all-Mozart concert in May 2011. Led by Music Director Domenico Boyagian, the orchestra seeks to establish a free concert series for the city of Cleveland and Cuyahoga County as a whole. The orchestra’s educational programs extend beyond the traditional visits to local schools and performance collaborations with students to include a Concerto Competition and Recording Series, a Young Composers Series, and an educational video series.
