Cleveland Orchestra celebrates Student Appreciation Week with discounted tickets

This week, the Cleveland Orchestra will host Student Appreciation Week performances. All students enrolled (for free) in the orchestra’s Student Advantage Program are offered $5 tickets to the performances, and all student ambassadors and frequent fan cardholders will be invited to an exclusive post-concert party on Thursday, Oct. 10.

Each of the three Student Appreciation Week shows will feature Marek Janowski as conductor, Matthew Polenzani as tenor and Richard King as horn. The featured works will be the “Fauré Suite” from Pelléas and Mélisande, the “Britten Serenade for Tenor, Horn, and Strings” and the “Franck Symphony in D Minor.” The show times are:

  • Thursday, Oct. 10, 7:30 p.m.
  • Saturday, Oct. 12, 8 p.m.
  • Sunday, Oct. 13, 3 p.m. (under age 18 can attend for free with the purchase of one full-price adult ticket)

With free enrollment in the Student Advantage Program, any high school, undergraduate and graduate/post-graduate students may purchase tickets for $10 year-round and $5 during Student Appreciation Week. Additionally, members have exclusive access to master classes and rehearsals for free. The $10 tickets are available on the Monday prior to the show, and are available until one hour before the performance begins, at which point they will cost $15.

Any student can enroll in the Student Advantage Program for free at the Severance Hall Ticket Office or by emailing
