Musicians and Conductors

“America's finest orchestra”  —New York Times

“Better performances don't exist”  —USA Today

The 100-plus members of The Cleveland Orchestra perform together year round, at the group’s winter home at Severance Hall, its summer home at Blossom Music Center, on tours in the United States and around the world, and at residencies such as Miami and Vienna.

Each musician was asked to join The Cleveland Orchestra following a rigorous audition process that often attract hundreds of applications for each opening. The members represent the best orchestral musicians on earth. They have earned degrees from the world's best schools and conservatories, with many now serving as teachers at colleges and universities across Northeast Ohio. They make their homes in communities throughout the Cleveland metropolitan area, raising children and pursuing a range of hobbies and interests beyond their musical professions.
