Imagine settling into your seat at Severance Hall, preparing for an evening of music. But, instead of members of the world-renowned Cleveland Orchestra, who walks on the stage but … local mayors and judges, lawyers and business owners, nonprofit heads and corporate officers and doctors, even a member of the state school board.
And yes, they are going to make music — they are going to sing! It’s all for a good cause, though — the annual Sing Out! for the Rape Crisis Center, which serves people in four northeast Ohio communities, not just promoting healing and prevention, but also working to end sexual violence.
Each year, more than 100 local community leaders gather to perform. The list this year includes people like retired newscaster Leon Bibb, University Heights mayor Michael Dylan Brennan, South Euclid mayor Georgine Welo, Beck Center executive director Lucinda Einhouse, President/CEO of the Great Lakes Science Center Kirsten Ellenbogen, Dr. Lolita McDavid of UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital, Judge Joseph D. Russo and that school board member, Meryl Johnson. There’s even a real professional singer, Liz Huff, a Cleveland Institute of Music grad who has performed in numerous local, national and international stages.
Tickets are $100 which includes a post-performance dessert reception and $250 for VIP ticket which include a pre-performance party.
