“Best Band in the Land!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

The Cleveland Orchestra is a world-class symphony orchestra that plays in the fall, winter and spring in the wonderful and gorgeous Severance Hall on the East side of Cleveland in the University Circle area. The concert experience is second to none that I have had over the years. Also wonderful is going to the beautiful Blossom Music Center in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park and sitting on the lawn with good friends, a picnic dinner, and a couple of bottles of fine wine, That is one of my favorite pastimes in July and August.

“World famous Cleveland Orchestra”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

Going to Severance Hall to hear the world famous Cleveland Orchestra is always a treat!!! The beauty of the surroundings is equal to the beauty of the music you will enjoy. What an enjoyable evening you will have, no matter the program. Everyone in the Cleveland area should realize and take advantage of the jewel of the Cleveland Orchestra that we have in our city!!

“World class outstanding orchestra.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

Although we live outside of Pittsburgh and are season subscribers to the Pittsburgh Symphony, we like to good to Cleveland or Blossom to hear the Cleveland Orchestra. Our last visit was opening night of the season and we were able to get front row seats in front of the pianist. Incredible.
And, as an outstanding bonus, Severance Hall is a treasure. We have been in many concert halls around the world and this one is just spectacular. If you are Cleveland and have never seen this hall, go just to see the hall. We have been there twice, once in the front row orchestra and once in the back row orchestra. The sound was amazing, although the view is different. If you like classical music. GO.

“Awesome acoustics”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

The Cleveland Orchestra, in its Severance Hall home, is not to be missed. The acoustics are arguably the best of any concert hall in this country, and the art nouveau decor is gorgeous without being distracting. A world class orchestra with a world class conductor.
