The FiveOne Experimental Orchestra is a Cleveland-based group of sixteen composers and performers with a no-boundaries approach to music. Our vision is to create a diverse stream of fresh, new-perspective musical works and to bring an intriguing meld of genres, styles, and artistic disciplines to usual and unusual spaces. Toward that end, we often position players around or within the audience, blend art music with rock, pop, digital sounds or world music, and collaborate with like-minded artists from various disciplines to produce innovative multimedia performances.
The heart of FiveOne’s mission is to challenge both traditional and non-traditional concert-goers to participate with open mind, eyes, ears, and hearts in a truly unique musical experience. We compose with both power chords and counterpoint. Our violins sing like Paganini’s, yet sometimes they scream electric guitar sounds. Our audiences are as diverse as our music, yet our music speaks to each listener on a personal level.
FiveOne is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to using music, and the arts as a whole, to communicate meaning, foster community, and create cosmos in a world of chaos.
FiveOne invites you to be a part.
