The next installment in the Canton Symphony Orchestra’s “Divergent Sounds” series on May 2 will feature singer/songwriter Cody Martin performing with a string quartet of musicians from the orchestra. Martin, a native of Massillon, Ohio, has been performing folk, blues, and country music for five years in his home state and across the country. The orchestra’s “Divergent Sounds” series takes place at the Zimmermann Symphony Center and launched in May 2018 with “Hip Hop Meets the Symphony,” featuring the Akron-based group A-Minus. The remaining two concerts in the series this season will feature Youngstown, Ohio artist Demos Papadimas in a program entitled “Greco-Americana Meets the Symphony” (May 23) and Akron group The Ledges in “80s Indie Pop Meets the Symphony” (June 13). The orchestra reports that the series has been “a huge hit with fans of not only the orchestra and guest bands, but people interested in live, local music in Northeast Ohio.”
