The Cleveland Orchestra to Launch Season Two of ‘On a Personal Note’ Series

By Logan Martell

On September 1, 2020, The Cleveland Orchestra will launch the second season its “On a Personal Note” Podcast.

This weekly series will feature artists sharing their personal experiences through words as well as music.

“On a Personal Note” premiered last spring, and has since been downloaded more than 17,000 times throughout the U.S., Canada, Japan, Germany, Austria, and other countries. The second season will be comprised of 10 episodes and will be available across all major podcast platforms, as well as The Cleveland Orchestra’s website.

“The past few months have undoubtedly been some of the most difficult times The Cleveland Orchestra has ever faced in its 103-year history,” writes André Gremillet, Cleveland Orchestra President and CEO. “But they’ve also provided us with opportunities to explore new initiatives that connect our audiences and musicians. The first season of ‘On a Personal Note’ was tremendously successful as it made it possible for our audiences and listeners to get to know Franz Welser-Möst and Cleveland Orchestra musicians better, through their musical and personal stories.”

The first episode will feature Music Director Franz Welser-Möst as shares his connection with the music of Schubert, his time studying in Vienna, becoming a violinist, and more.
