This place is always such a delight to be in; drink in the magnificent design, the layout, the acoustics, the Cleveland Orchestra performers and the wonderful conductor we had this weekend (Jaap vanSveden) and pianist who were full of life. Conductor vanSveden pranced as he enthusiastically presented Beethoven Symphony No. 5 along with 2 other pieces. Sadly, people don't appreciate... More

Severance Hall, now that it has been renovated, is one of the most beautiful concert halls in the world, as befits a world-class orchestra. Wonderful acoustics.Visually impressive.

WOW!!!!!! This was our first visit to Severance Hall and it won't be our last! The Cleveland Pops performance of the theme songs from James Bond movies was spectacular! The venue is beautiful and it is acoustically perfect! We were very impressed and look forward to returning for other performances. Well done!

The orchestra is rated as one of the best in the country. the building is an architectural gem inside and out. I saw the Cleveland Pops on this occasion which is a separate organization but also plays in Severance hall. There are self guided tours brochures that explain the buildings design. There are also behind the scenes guided tours well... More

We have enjoyed Severance Hall and the Cleveland Orchestra for many years. It is a beautiful venue with many choices of concerts including those for even tiny children. The opera presentations are always excellent as are the holiday presentations including the Nutcracker Ballet, Handel's MESSIAH, and sing-along carols. Many also enjoy the projected movies with the orchestra providing the music!

The Orchestra has evolved from a conservative period to a World Class Orchestra that strikes an unusual balance between vintage classics as well as strong contemporary and non-traditional works. And what is exciting is that their musicianship is flawless regardless of the subject matter. The soloists and guest conductors they enlist are top tier. They produce magic time and time... More

This hall is spectacular. Beautiful art deco detail and gorgeous color scheme. We sat in a box, which was a treat. It was difficult to see beyond the two people seated in front of us. We had to move our seats over in order to see, as there was no elevation of our seats behind the couple in the front... More

Definitely one of the most beautiful concert halls in the US - stunning, especially the pink marble entry. We saw a wonderful performance of Beethoven's Symphony No 8. Sat front row center of Dress Circle - great seats with full view of the orchestra. This was the highlight of our Cleveland visit.
