The Cleveland Orchestra and Music Director Franz Welser-Möst have announced details of the orchestra’s 2017-18 calendar — what will be the ensemble’s 100th year of concerts and the launch of its second century of performances..

With the 2017-18 season, The Cleveland Orchestra pushes forward with a series of ambitious goals, including building upon the ensemble’s legendary musical excellence, continuing to grow the youngest audience of any orchestra, deepening relationships in the community through unique collaborations, customized engagement, and music education for all ages.

This includes continuing the family-friendly “Under 18s Free” program, developed by the Cleveland Orchestra’s Center for Future Audiences. The program makes for affordable family outings by offering free tickets to people age 17 and younger for select Severance Hall concerts this season.

“Looking toward The Cleveland Orchestra’s future, I am filled with enormous pride in the 100 year collaboration between the Orchestra and community,” said Music Director Franz Welser-Möst. “The exceptional musicianship and dedication of this Orchestra are acclaimed anew with each passing season, here at home and around the world. Our audiences’ musical curiosity and intellect drives all of us onstage forward, to dream beyond the past, and to continue exploring new boundaries in music.”
