Before and After
with DJ MisterBradleyP (  

A gentle and warm summer evening . . . a sublime night of music hand-selected just for you . . . great drinks and conversation on the beautiful Front Terrace of Severance Hall.  Join The Cleveland Orchestra for a new summertime experience hand-crafted for the enjoyment of all the senses.  A casual come-as-you-are atmosphere surrounded by the stunning visual charm of “America’s most beautiful concert hall.”   The evening starts early (if you wish) with a special Happy Hour — meet your friends or family before the concert to relax and start to unwind.  Then feel the inspiration of great music performed by the “world’s favorite orchestra” (voted by Bachtrack followers in 2013) in the perfect intimacy of Severance Hall.  Afterwards, the Front Terrace beckons with a one-of-a-kind sunset, along with drink and dessert options, plus cooler evening breezes and DJ’d musical offerings.  The perfect ending for a great evening.  Set amidst the growing excitement of University Circle, the best “new” neighborhood in Northeast Ohio!

The Case Western Reserve University Campus Center Garage is located directly adjacent to Severance Hall (parking entrance is off East Boulevard), with stair and elevator access to Severance Hall.  Event parking in the Campus Center Garage can be purchased for $11 per vehicle when space permits. However, the garage often fills up well before concert time and only patrons who purchase pre-paid parking passes are ensured a parking space.
