For the second time in as many months, the world renowned Cleveland Orchestra has suspended one of its musicians amid an ongoing investigation into sexual misconduct allegations.

On Saturday, the Cleveland Orchestra suspended its principal trombone player, Massimo La Rosa.

Without giving specifics, an orchestra spokesman said the suspension was part of an ongoing investigation, one that stemmed from allegations involving another one of its musicians, violinist and Concertmaster William Preucil.

People who live near Blossom Music Center in Cuyahoga Falls may soon have some relief from traffic caused by concerts with a new city-issued car pass.

Blossom had previously issued passes that would hang from rearview mirrors, alerting deputies that they should let nearby residents proceed around traffic to get home.

Susie Vanaman lives just a few yards from the Northampton Road entrance, and says the old passes don’t always work that way.
