The Cleveland Orchestra’s 2018 Blossom Music Festival

2018 Blossom Music Festival – 3 July to 2 September

This summer, the 2018 Blossom Music Festival will travel into its second half-century with concerts by the Cleveland Orchestra and others. The festival’s open-sided pavilion, located adjacent to the Cuyahoga Valley National Park near Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, provides a very different acoustic from the orchestra’s regular season home at Severance Hall, and gives the ensemble a chance to work with a more expansive sound.
