    A couple of years ago, Joshua Smith, principal flute of The Cleveland Orchestra, met Sean Watterson, who had recently returned to his hometown of Cleveland after a career in international finance. In an unlikely professional swerve, Watterson was now a proprietor of Happy Dog, an old corner bar on Cleveland’s gritty, less culturally endowed West Side, situated at the edge of a once crime-ridden neighborhood, recently transformed into the Gordon Square Arts District. Smith and Watterson got talking—not about the saloon’s menu (hot dogs with a choice of fifty different toppings)—but about its live music program. At the time, Happy Dog booked local rock acts and polka bands. “What about classical music?” said Smith. “Why not?” said Watterson. Such was the beginning of what has become a beautiful friendship between some of Cleveland’s finest classical musicians and a whole new legion of fans, most of whom are young and unexpectedly susceptible to the charms of classical music. (excerpt from the liner notes by Charles Michener)

"I was looking for ways to get classical music away from its sometimes-reverential stuffiness and into places where people congregate for fun. When we’re three feet away from them, wearing jeans, drinking beer, and yet still communicating directly and powerfully, the experience can be visceral and accessible."

Joshua Smith, The Cleveland Orchestra
