Just in: Cleveland Orchestra’s chorus director steps downmain
Robert Porco will end his tenure as Cleveland’s Director of Choruses in September 2018, after 19 years.
‘Bob Porco has been a great musical partner of the Cleveland Orchestra,” says Franz Welser-Möst, music director. ‘At home in Cleveland, and on tour, he has been a driving force in bringing our choral works to life. He has taken on challenging repertoire from Mozart to Mahler, from Beethoven to Stravinsky, and for our annual opera productions across multiple languages and styles – and all with a group of dedicated volunteers. He has inspired thousands of singers to perform at their best.’
