The Cleveland Orchestra sets standards of artistic excellence, concert programming, and community engagement. Even if you can't be at Severance Hall or Blossom Music Center in person, you can hear The Cleveland Orchestra each week in live or recorded radio broadcasts. 2016 marks the 51st Broadcast Season for the Cleveland Orchestra, which under Music Director Franz Welser-Möst presents 26 concerts.

The Orchestra's new Executive Director Andre Gremillet points to the neighborhood residencies as an important way to create new connections between the musicians and people across the region.

"It's all about how do you make more of an impact," says Gremillet.  "How do you make a difference as an orchestra in the community where you are?"
