Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Cleveland Women’s Orchestra has cancelled its 85th Anniversary Concert at Severance Hall on April 5th.

If you purchased tickets through the Severance Hall box office, refunds will be handled by them.

If you purchased tickets through an orchestra member, please contact that person to facilitate your refund.   For additional questions, please contact CWO President, Janet Hall at janethall703@gmail.com or 216-406-4388.

You can receive a refund for your ticket purchase, or you may want to consider it as a donation to help us during this difficult time- especially so for non-profits.   Even though our concert will not take place, many expenses were incurred in promoting the event.   

Thank you so very much to our donors whose generosity will help us through this.

We wish you all good health.  Please monitor our website and social media for updates.   Thank you for your support and patronage and we hope to see you again soon.

The historic Cleveland Women’s Orchestra serves Greater Cleveland and Northeast Ohio. Founded in 1935, it is the last of the many women’s orchestras that flourished during the early part of the 20th Century.

The orchestra provides performance opportunities for women musicians, showcases talented young soloists and performs a series of free “Gift of Music” outreach concerts for various social service agencies, schools, hospitals, retirement homes and nursing homes. Over its many years, the orchestra has performed over 500 free outreach concerts — a record unmatched by any other orchestra in the area.

In addition, the orchestra performs symphonic concerts in cooperation with other area organizations and returns to Severance Hall each Spring for its annual Anniversary Concert.
