Cleveland Orchestra

Sundays at 7 pm

As it nears the centennial of its founding in 2018,  The Cleveland Orch­estra is undergoing a new transformation and renaissance.  Under the leadership of Franz Welser-Möst, entering his fifteenth year as the ensemble’s music director with the upcoming 2016-17 season, The Cleveland Orchestra is acknowledged among the world’s very best orchestras.

The Cleveland Orchestra was among the first American orchestras heard on a regular series of radio broadcasts, and its Severance Hall home was one of the first concert halls in the world built with recording and broadcasting capabilities.
