Our first experience at Severance Hall with the Cleveland Orchestra was the Christmas Concert. Beautiful, inspirational, uplifting and joyous music! The architecture and decor of Severance Hall is awesome. We plan to make this a yearly tradition.

I have gone here many times, as a child and as an adult and it's always a great experience. Such a beautiful place and such talented artists. What makes it even better is that they have special themed nights with movie music along to the film to get in a younger crowd. So nice.

There is nothing to say that isn't constantly written. This is one of the world's greatest orchestras, and I get to attend performances many times each year. Their homes (Severance Hall during Season, Blossom Music Center in Summers) are comfortable with wonderful acoustics. The players are the cream-of-the-crop from top schools around the world. Their selections are exciting. What a... More

Since the glory days of George Szell, the Cleveland Orchestra has been famous for being one of the very finest symphony orchestras in the world. Severance Hall is a wonderful place - excellent acoustics - to hear the orchestra sing.

This must be the best orchestra in the country in fact it has had that reputation. The principle clarinetist is the best I have ever heard .The best seats are upstairs in the dress circle or in the lower balcony. This allows the spectator to watch each performer as the piece is played.

Spent New Year's Eve at Severance listening to beautiful music. The atmosphere was one of happiness and cheer. The orchestra was simply wonderful playing music from Jersey Boys to Gloria Estefan. After 2 hours of music two bands were available (on separate floors) for dancing and celebration. Loved the band playing 60's and 70's people of all ages dancing and... More

We visited the Cleveland Orchestra. At Severance Hall for the holiday concert this year. What a great show for all ages - so great; it will become a family tradition each year moving forward. The orchestra played along with a full choir. Santa even showed up for part of the performance - one of the best I've seen. Would recommend... More

The Cleveland Orchestra has to be the best in the world. This Christmas Concert is one of those things that if you do not see it, then your Christmas is not complete. Their performances are the best--what a fantastic, beautiful show all the way around. Being Christmas, it was good to have good old Santa Claus there along with the... More

Lovely building with incredible architecture.... Amazing Holiday performance by the Symphony! A mix of familiar holiday music and some new favorites from around the world. Choir was excellent-- and the youth chior was adorable! The lights were festive and a surprise visit from Santa delighted the kids!!! A nice family outing to celebrate the holidays!!!

We moved out of state nine years ago and haven't had the chance until tonight to attend a Cleveland Orchestra concert. Oh, how I've missed them! The concert was amazing! Love, love, LOVE them!! The Christmas concert was a visual and auditory delight! I want to move back home so I can hear them all the time!
