New pricing options at Blossom Festival

Posted on: May 22, 2009

The Cleveland Orchestra’s Blossom Festival season will offer several new ticket-pricing options this season. Lawn/General Admission tickets now allow concertgoers to sit on the lawn or in newly designated General Admission areas in the rear corner sections of the Pavilion, an arrangement that adds 1,500 lower-priced seats in the Pavilion. Also new this season, children 12 and under will be admitted free to the lawn for all concerts (two per adult). The festival season runs during ten weekends from July 3 through September 6, with the Cleveland Orchestra performing concerts led by Music Director Franz Welser-Möst, as well as by Robert Porco, Tito Muñoz, Lionel Bringuier, David Zinman, Jahja Ling, Jayce Ogren, Jack Everly, James Gaffigan, Giancarlo Guerrero, George Daugherty, and Loras John Schissel. The summer season includes performances of symphonies by Shostakovich, Tchaikovsky, Schumann, Mozart, and Mendelssohn, as well as evenings featuring the Joffrey Ballet, dancing to music by Khachaturian, Corelli, Cowell, Mahler, and Richard Rodgers; Sci-Fi music, with narrator George Takei, with music from Star Trek, Star Wars, E.T., and Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone; Rodgers & Hammerstein, with Broadway performers Christiane Noll, Aaron Lazar, and William Michals; and “Bugs Bunny on Broadway.”
