In performances at home and around the globe, The Cleveland Orchestra remains one of the most sought-after performing ensembles in the world and Northeast Ohio’s most visible international ambassador.

Tune into Classical 91.5 on Wednesdays at 8 p.m. beginning August 19, 2015 to hear The Cleveland Orchestra’s 50th broadcast season. The season includes 26 concerts under Music Director Franz Welser-Möst and features guest conductors Giancarlo Guerrero, James Gaffigan, Jahja Ling, and archival programming featuring George Szell.  World renowned soloists appearing this season include pianists Lang Lang, Mitsuko Uchida, and Jean-Yves Thibaudet.  

In performances at home and around the globe, The Cleveland Orchestra remains one of the most sought-after performing ensembles in the world and Northeast Ohio’s most visible international ambassador.  In concerts at its winter home at Severance Hall and at each summer’s Blossom Music Festival, in residencies from Miami to Vienna, and on tour around the world, The Cleveland Orchestra sets standards of artistic excellence, creative programming, and active community engagement.  With the 2013-14 season, Franz Welser-Möst enters his twelfth year leading the ensemble, with a commitment extending to the Orchestra’s centennial in 2018. 

The Cleveland Orchestra was founded in 1918 by a group of local citizens intent on creating an ensemble worthy of joining America’s ranks of major symphony orchestras.  Over the ensuing decades, the Orchestra quickly grew from a fine regional organization to being one of the most admired symphony orchestras in the world.
