“Excellent!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We have been going to the Holiday concert at Severance for the past 3 years and again I have tickets for this year! My son goes to Case Western Reserve and the concert hall is right on the corner of campus. The building is absolutely beautiful inside!! There is an elevator for those who need. I always get our tickets for the balcony $20.00 thru $55.00 per tickets. From the balcony you can see everything. I am sure that any seat in the house would be great. Downstairs there is a bar that you can get a glass of wine, beer, pop, water coffee or tea prior to the show. Plus there is another bar up on the balcony level. The conductor is superb the orchestra is just wonderful! If you are every in the area please take in a concert!!! Not sure what will do when Chris graduates this December! I guess we will continue to drive up! We drive about and hour and half to see. So worth the trip.

“One of the great orchestras of the world”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

We had the pleasure of touring Severance Hall which is a perfectly maintained Art Deco masterpiece. We also caught the end of the rehearsal as a good friend of ours was conducting. I was so impressed with the discipline, sound, precision and professionalism of this great orchestra. Such a pleasure!

“Just Plain Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

Every time I go to a concert at Severance Hall, listening to "The Cleveland", I am thankful again for all the talent, vision, hard work and dedication through the years that underpin the orchestra today. The full orchestra sound is unique with an always present broad, richness topped off with a singing string section. Whether they are performing the "old war horses" or treating us to new compositions, stretching our ideas of music, it is always done with beautiful precision and depth of interpretation.
The concert hall itself, since the major renovation about 5 years ago, is a visual experience as well as an acoustical pleasure. I always think of a Viennese torte (a VERY good one) as I look around the hall. A sight and sound feast.
The usher staff is excellent and helpful, and the elevator operators (yes, actual people) are pleasant and have just the right touch of control of the crowd. Lav facilities have been improved (with the renovation, also). I do suggest buying a parking pass for the season if possible for the garage. For the out of town visitor, there are parking garages in the vicinity, but it is an outdoor walk. Usually, garage space at the Severance garage is available for Sunday afternoon concerts, a very nice way to spend Sunday afternoon.
