Rising young violinist Janine Jansen will accompany the Cleveland Orchestra on its five-concert tour of the southeast United States next month, performing Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto.

The program includes Elgar's Symphony No. 1 and Walton's Scapino, A Comedy Overture. Tchaikovsky's Suite From Sleeping Beauty will alternate with the Violin Concerto.
