Parma Ohio Music
Here at Music in the Arts, we have been on a mission to share music with the world for 65 years. For six decades, it has been about sharing the magic of music in every American community with communities across America.
We have remarkable growth stories that have everything to do with the unshakeable relationships we have built. We are proud to be a part of what America has to offer and we are grateful for the opportunities people are getting to learn about music for the first time. There is nothing better than being in the company of people learning about it for the first time.
It definitely arrives and motivates us and reminds us of the wonderful community in the area. Parma is located southwest of Cleveland and is bordered by the campus of Ohio State University, the University of Akron and Cleveland International Airport. It is a hard-working, humble community surrounded by a beautiful lake, a great river, an amazing park system and a vibrant community of artists and musicians. We are bordered on the west side of Cleveland, on the east side of Akron and on the west side of Cuyahoga County and border on the north side of Ohio University and on the south side of Parmas Heights.
Our house is located on the highest point in Cuyahoga County, which overlooks the entire northeastern part of the municipality of Parma. We are located south of the Ohio State University campus and are operated by the University of Akron and Cleveland International Airport, both just a few blocks from our home.
I would like to see more young people and families moving to the city and more people growing up in Parma appreciating what it has to offer. I want to start a conversation about how we can transform spaces like Parmatown to better cater to the needs of the community. What would attract artists and musicians to the area and attract them to our area? Artists and musicians are more concerned with the communities they live in and more interested in cleaning up and improving their neighborhoods. With the great metro parks that run through it, as well as the great food and memories we collected there as kids, it's great.
I am the first and only member of my generation to have a college degree, and I subsequently earned a Master of Music degree from the Peabody Conservatory at Johns Hopkins University. In addition, five other members of the music community have degrees in music and music education and several more studied music in elementary school. Without my music scholarship, our family could never have afforded to send me to college.
My first job was as an East Coast pudding, and I think I was attracted to this sweet start, but if I hadn't got my first real job at Rocky's Pizza, I wouldn't be sure where I would be today.
It was only years later that I realized that other teachers did not do everything for their students, and other music programs did not enjoy the success I had achieved. Every week I record a new record and am confronted with new music that I probably never heard at such a young age.
Benjamin Orr Orzechowski, born on September 8, 1947 in Lakewood, Ohio, attended Valley Forge High School. I reached out to him to hear his story of growing up in Parma and his love of music. The first settlers were in 1816, but money was scarce, tax revenues limited, and they began to talk about annexing the city to the Cleveland school district.
The first school building was a log cabin built on the site of what is now Parma Heights Cemetery. The name Greenbriar referred to the extensive bushes that grew there, but the name "Parma" replaced it before the foundation of the new community. Parma is the home of the Ukrainian Catholic Eparchy of Saint Josaphat, founded in 1983 by Pope John Paul II.
We are proud to host a four-concert organ series in collaboration with the plumber Pellegrino Music Canton, hosted by the Parma Symphony Orchestra and the Ohio State University Music Department. A recent production was the world premiere of "Parma, Ohio" in October 2012 in the auditorium of the University of Ohio. We are also the host of the annual "Cantonal Music Festival" on 1 and 2 October and on 3 and 4 and 5 September.
We give private music lessons in the store and take almost 100 student musicians to Burke Lakefront Airport where they enjoy free plane tickets to and from their concerts. If you are in love with the instruments in our store, you should check out our layaway program. We can't take her home today, but Mark starts in town, and so can you. When we get that sound out of the way, we get ready for our performance, don't we?
