CityMusic Cleveland is an American chamber orchestra based in Cleveland, Ohio. It was founded in the summer of 2004 to give free concerts throughout the Northeast Ohio area. Composed of professional free-lance musicians from the Cleveland area and beyond, the orchestra partners with community leaders, mayors, council members, and local civic organizations, to expand the audience for cultural events. Concerts are accompanied, occasionally, by art exhibits, featuring local and regional artists.

James Gaffigan was the orchestra's music director in July 2005 till January 2010. Avner Dorman, well-known composer, was appointed Music Director in July, 2013. The orchestra's flexible membership ranges between 34 and 44 performers.

CityMusic Cleveland has been reviewed and/or featured in The Plain Dealer, "Symphony Magazine", Gramophone, Northern Ohio Live, and the Continental Airlines magazine, among other publications.
