CIRCLE Membership
2 Tickets
to each monthly event


The Circle is for Young Professionals between the ages of 21-40.

A special committee of Circle Members and Orchestra staff work to curate a diverse series of monthly events that serve a broad range of interests. From concerts at Severance Hall and Blossom Music Center, to guided tours of Severance Hall, to special Opera performances, discussions with artistic leadership and behind-the-scenes access, Circle members get a taste of everything! And of course, there's always time for networking with great drinks and company.

We auto bill your credit card on the 15th of every month, though it may take a few days after the billing date to appear on your account.

Your Circle membership continues automatically each month until you decide to cancel – just like Netflix or Amazon Prime. 

You can cancel your Circle Membership at any time with 30 days’ notice. Any cancellations or changes to accounts made after the 15th of the month will not be reflected until the following month.

The Circle is always looking for motivated individuals to help plan events and improve membership. We have several committees and a leadership board that are available to Circle members to serve on. Those interested in serving in a leadership role in The Circle should email thecircle@clevelandorchestra.com.
