LIVE BROADCAST BY WCLV AND WCPN FROM HAPPY DOG SALOON
On Wednesday, August 15th, at 8:00 PM, WCLV 104.9 and sister station 90.3 WCPN will jointly present a two hour live broadcast from the Happy Dog Saloon at 5801 Detroit Avenue in the Gordan Square Art District.
Happy Dog is the home of the monthly Classical Revoution that has become a very popular event. In fact, the place is usually filled to capacity when Josuha Smith, principal flute of The Cleveland Orchestra and members of his Ensemble HD (Happy Dog/High Definition), perform a selection of the classics in the classically comfortable setting. But when Ensemble HD plays its next concert at Happy Dog on August 15th, the radio audience will experience the program live from WCLV and WCPN.
In addition to Smith, the Ensemble HD includes Cleveland Orchestra members Amy Lee, violin; Joanna Patterson-Zakany, viola; and Charles Bernard, cello. In addition, there's pianist Christine Dahl, who is an associate professor at Stony Brook University. The live broadcast will be hosted by 90.3's Dan Poletta with color commentary by WCLV's Mark Satola. Listeners will hear insights from Smith and guests Sean Watterson, co-ower of the Happy Dog, author and arts advocate Charles Michner and Tom Welsh, the Cleveland Museum of Art's associate director;of music.
WCPN producer Dave DeOrio says that, "The Happy Dog has become a nexus of culture for the community. And there is a loT of people who have heard about the Ensemble HD's concerts at Happy Dog but haven't gone to a show yet. This live broadcast is a good way to bring the community together and give people a chance to experience this unique combo via live radio."
