MOSES-HannahOver 1,300 students have been members of the Cleveland Orchestra Youth Orchestra during the past twenty-seven seasons, representing a remarkable group of talented young people.

It describes in advance the thirty-nine graduating seniors who were congratulated with individual descriptions of the next step in their musical journeys.
