The Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration Concert is free to the community; however, tickets are required. Due to the high demand for tickets — and to provide fair and equitable access to all interested in attending — free tickets will be distributed via a lottery drawing system, which may be entered by filling out a lottery form, sending a postcard or letter to the Severance Hall Ticket Office, or by calling the Ticket Office.
Lottery entries will be accepted beginning December 12, 2018 at 10:00AM, and all entries must be received by January 3, 2019 at 5:00PM. Winners will be chosen at random on January 4, 2019, and will be mailed tickets on that date. One entry per household is permitted, with a limit of four tickets per entry.
Phone entries can be made by calling the Severance Hall Ticket Office at 216-231-1111 during regular business hours (Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. & Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.). For mail entries, please send name, address, email address, phone number, and the number of tickets requested (up to four) to:
2019 MLK Ticket Lottery/Cleveland Orchestra Ticket Office
11001 Euclid Avenue
Cleveland, OH 44106
For those unable to attend, please listen to the live radio broadcasts (detailed above) or the delayed telecast on January 20.
