We continue to keep the health and safety of everyone — guests, musicians, staff, and volunteers — as our first priority and intend to continue to implement protocols and procedures to ensure that our concert experience is safe and enjoyable.
All protocols are in accordance with the guidelines from the State of Ohio and Summit County health department, and in consultation with the Cleveland Clinic.More on Venue Policies
Comprehensive, continuing, and consistent cleaning procedures are in place throughout Blossom Music Center.
