“World class music”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

The Cleveland Orchestra is among the best three in the world. Their music is phenominal and performances are in one of the most beautiful music halls. Ticket prices are very reasonable for such an outstanding entertainment. Parking is easy in the basement of the hall. All seats in Severance Hall are great -- even the upper levels. I would not worry about what price ticket I got because they are all good seats and the hall ecoustics are great. If I came to Cleveland area, I would not want to miss a performance.

“The most wonderful orchestra in the WORLD!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

We listened to the Cleveland Orchestra play Beethoven's 5th Symphony in the beautiful Severance Hall. Exquisite sound led by a dynamic conductor, Franz Welzer- Most.
The acoustics are excellent- even from up in the balcony. Intermission gave us time to stroll into the lobby to marvel at the architecture in silver and blue colors, pink marble, carpeted staircases. What a fantastic evening for all four of us adults.Tickets were $75 each in the balcony.

Children under 7 years old are not permitted at the adult concerts. Special concerts are held on weekend afternoons for young children.

“Classic Music Hall”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

We had wonderful first row center balcony seats with an unimpeded view of the orchestra. As lovers of the San Francisco Symphony, this was an especial treat and prices far more reasonable.

“The best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

Our last visit to Severance Hall was over 40 years ago. While I was in training at Metro Health, my wife and I had the privilege of having Sunday Series tickets when the orchestra became world famous under the directorship of George Szell. We returned last week and found that we were still amazed in the upper balcony. The spectrum of acoustics was amazing from the the softest pianissimo to the loudest forte. The orchestra is still one of the best in the world, but the most impressive change is the beauty of the hall. We could not believe the gorgeous transformation and the Czech evening was truly satisfying. The place was well staffed with the most friendly and out-going people and they made us feel like old friends. It was a wonderful experience and we would recommend it to anyone who loves the arts and a concert experience.
