Cleveland Orchestra enters its second century
By Heather Tunstall
With the Cleveland Orchestra entering into its second century in the 2017-18 season, they're building upon a hundred years of history to deliver performances for the modern audience. With programming that includes everything from classics to opera to pop culture, your group will be astounded by one of the top orchestras in the world, led by music director Franz Welser-Möst.
Severance Hall is the home of the Cleveland Orchestra, and it is nothing short of breathtaking. The 1931 Hall’s architecture has been recognized by preservation societies across the country, including the Cleveland Landmarks Commission and the National Register of Historic Places, and has received the National Trust for Historic Preservation's Honor Award.
If your group travels here during summer months, the orchestra puts on unique performances at its summer home of Blossom Music Center in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio — just 25 miles south of Downtown Cleveland and 10 miles north of Akron. Blossom is located within the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, a unique and gorgeous setting that adds to the ambiance of the experience. In addition to classical concerts, performances by The Cleveland Orchestra at Blossom have included ballet, Broadway, movie scores, and visiting artists. The Blossom Pavilion is a covered venue with distinctive architecture and fantastic acoustics. The Pavilion seats more than 6,000 people, while the hillside Lawn can accommodate nearly 14,000 more audience members who can enjoy the music under the stars on picnic blankets or lawn chairs.
Groups can enjoy many benefits including priority seating, discounts, free bus parking and customized events.
