Each year Tuesday Musical Association presents the stars of the classical music world in concert at The University of Akron’s E.J. Thomas Performing Arts hall to its Akron audience. Stars like Luciano Pavarotti, Segovia, Joshua Bell and Yo-Yo Ma have appeared on the Tuesday Musical concert stage. Ensembles like the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, the Kings Singers, Empire Brass, Orpheus and Tokyo String Quartet have also graced the stage over the years. The Cleveland Orchestra has been presented every year (except for one) since its founding 92 years ago. Tuesday Musical also takes pride in presenting the stars of tomorrow who are just on the cusp of stardom themselves. A very young Midori, Hilary Hahn and Joshua Bell appeared as young artists and have returned as not only mature artists, but as super stars in their fields.
What Tuesday Musical has accomplished since its own founding in 1887 is unique in today’s presenting world. The Concert Series is comparable to what is found in the major music capitols around the world and, thanks to support from a loyal audience, local foundations and corporations who support the series, it continues to thrive and offer the ‘Best of the Best’ at affordable prices.
