Under 18s Free for Families
"Under 18s Free for Famlies"
All Blossom Festival concerts are eligible for Under 18s Free for Families.
Introduced for Blossom Music Festival concerts in 2011, the “Under 18s Free for Families” program is designed to encourage families to attend and experience concerts together. With strong interest from the public and the funders who make these free tickets possible, this program has been extended from Blossom to include select Cleveland Orchestra concerts at Severance Hall each season.
At Blossom, this program offers free Lawn Tickets (two per regular-priced adult paid admission) to young people to any Blossom Music Festival concert. Under 18s Free Lawn Passes can be obtained in advance online or thru the Seveance Hall Ticket Office.
At Severance Hall, the program offers free tickets (one per regular-priced adult paid admission) to young people ages 7-17 to the Orchestra’s Fridays@7, Friday Morning at 11, and Sunday Afternoon at 3 concerts. The free tickets for Severance Hall concerts eligible for this program must be purchased through the Severance Hall Ticket Office and are not available online.
The "Under 18s Free" initiative is supported by The Cleveland Orchestra’s Center for Future Audiences and by annual gifts from other generous donors. The Center for Future Audiences was created with a $20 million lead endowment gift from the Maltz Family Foundation to develop new generations of audiences for Cleveland Orchestra concerts in Northeast Ohio.
To date, this program has offered over 30,000 free tickets to Northeast Ohio young people at Blossom and Severance Hall.
