The Music Settlement of Cleveland will establish an Ohio City presence at the Bop Stop

The Music Settlement, the 101 year old music institution from University Circle will broaden its reach as it plans to come to Ohio City, specifically Detroit Avenue, in 2014. The owners of the Cleveland Bop Stop donated their building to the Music Settlement to enable educational programming and a performance space in the 4,000 square foot concert space. The Bop Stop previously operated as a jazz concert venue. The organization serves 4,500 with classes and programs for infants, preschoolers, junior and high school students and adults. At their new west side location they will offer after school programs, music therapy and concerts.

The new energy at the Bop Stop will add to the exciting momentum on Detroit Avenue and in the the neighborhood. It complements the surrounding Transformer Station Gallery, ICA Art Conservation and other creative businesses nearby.
