2019-2020 Concert Season

85th Anniversary Season

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.
