Ambassador Theodore Sedgwick
(Zachary Duvall)

Theodore Sedgwick, the ambassador to the Slovak Republic, is a native Clevelander who grew up in Gates Mills and graduated from the Hawken School. Tuesday at his home in Bratislava, he hosted a little party and confab with the Mayor of Bratislava and representatives of the Cleveland Orchestra.

Sedgwick and his wife Kate then escorted the group to the Hall of Mirrors of the Primatial Palace for a celebration of the Cleveland-Bratislava Sister City Partnership. There the Omni Quartet performed Beethoven’s String Quartet #15. Following the performance by violinists Jung-Min Amy Lee and Alicia Koelz, violist Joanna Patterson ┬áZakany, and cellist Tanya Ell, about 100 invitees enjoyed an elegant reception.

This may be the prelude to a much bigger celebration. Ambassador Sedgwick wants the Cleveland Orchestra to perform in Bratislava in October of 2015 to mark the centennial of the Cleveland Agreement. That’s the Slovak version of our Declaration of Independence. It was signed in Cleveland, thanks to the efforts of Cleveland’s Czechoslovakian community. No firm decisions have been made, but Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson reportedly supports the idea.
