Our commitment to your Health and Safety

As audiences return to Severance Hall, our first priority is to ensure the health and safety of everyone — guests, musicians, staff, and volunteers. In partnership with the Cleveland Clinic, we are implementing a number of protocols and procedures to ensure that your concert experience is safe and enjoyable.
