You understand the difference between a concerto and a sonata, never clap between movements and you’ve got the know-how to properly dress for the opera. While you love the classics, your playlist also includes some finely scored Broadway musical and big band sounds. For the classical music aficionado, here’s your music-fueled itinerary to Cleveland.
BREAKFAST: Enter the West Side Market, a food lover's paradise, with its maze of vendors and family-owned stalls selling everything from fresh meat and vegetables to baked goods and fresh flowers.
MORNING: The internationally recognized Cleveland Museum of Art always offers free admission to its permanent collection, which includes masterpieces by Picasso, Dali, Monet and more.
LUNCH: Experience a beautiful lunch at Provenance, located inside the Cleveland Museum of Art where Chef Doug Katz designs his menu around the very works of art that are on display.
AFTERNOON: Get transfixed by an afternoon performance at the Cleveland Institute of Music, where students and faculty—many of whom are renowned musicians from all over the world—perform free of charge (or nearly free of charge).
DINNER: Cleveland's culinary scene is on fire and celeb chef Michael Symon has a lot to do with that. Enjoy Symon's twists on Cleveland classics (don't miss the beef-cheek pierogi) at Lola Bistro on East 4th Street.
PRE-SHOW: Whether you’re in the mood for a dark red, a fruity white or something a little sparkling, sip a pre-show drink at BIN 216 in the Playhouse Square District.
THE SHOW: Experience glitz and glamour inside of one of the 10 performance spaces that makes up Playhouse Square, where they’re hosting hundreds of concerts, Broadway blockbusters, theatrical plays, comedy shows and more.
