The Circle is for Young Professionals between the ages of 21-39.

What kind of events and performances can I expect?

A special committee of Circle Members and Orchestra staff work together to curate a series of quarterly events happening at Severance and Blossom Music Center as well local businesses across the Greater Cleveland area. These events include guided tours of Severance Music Center, picnics at Blossom Music Center, discussion with artistic leadership, and behind-the-scenes access to the music and musicians of The Cleveland Orchestra. And of course, there’s always time for networking with great drinks and company!

When does my membership expire?
