Music as a form that gives us orientation, music as potential order, music as depth in a life beyond a surface that is rushing away from us, music as a place of community and listening, music as an expression of quiet and pausing for thought, music as a calm anchor in a restless world. (Franz Welser-Möst, From Silence. Finding Calm in a Dissonant World)
We are looking forward to welcoming you back this fall for our new season of in-person concerts
Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Foundation Gives Historic $50 Million Grant to The Cleveland Orchestra.
In recognition of the gift’s long-term impact, main performance space is named Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Concert Hall. The Cleveland Orchestra’s iconic home since 1931, named for founding benefactor John Long Severance, becomes Severance Music Center
Franz Welser-Möst: “As the Orchestra prepares to embark on its 104th season, we are moved and inspired by this remarkable recognition of our work. The musicians and audiences will feel the benefits of the Mandel Foundation’s gift almost immediately, starting with the upgrades to the building which will allow us to continue capturing video for our digital offerings”.
