The Cleveland Orchestra's Blossom Music Festival

Blossom Music Center and The Cleveland Orchestra are two of the cherished cultural institutions that help make Northeast Ohio a great place to live. WKSU is also an important part of this region. You rely on WKSU for fact-based news, conversations that engage and inspire, ideas that spark curiosity and music that soothes. As a listener, you know that public media means so much more than just being available to everyone. It means being free of commercial influences. It means independent journalism. It means entertainment and education.

The Cleveland Orchestra invites WKSU members to purchase half-priced tickets for four specially selected concerts during the 50th Anniversary Blossom Music Festival in summer 2018. Members can download a form through the WKSU Member Portal that can be presented with a photo ID at the Severance Hall or Blossom box offices to buy up to eight half-priced tickets for the following performances (this cannot be combined with other offers):

For the seventh year in a row, the Cleveland Orchestra this fall will welcome kids under 18 to Severance Hall for free on some nights. WKSU’s Kabir Bhatia reports on how that’s changed the makeup of the orchestra’s audience – and how it could change the audience in the future.
