CLEVELAND
 – Today, The Cleveland Orchestra regrets to announce the cancellation of its 2022 Miami residency in partnership with the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County.

This cancellation only relates to The Cleveland Orchestra concerts at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts. Ticket holders should contact the Arsht Center Box Office for information about all other Arsht Center performances.

About The Cleveland Orchestra in Miami
The Cleveland Orchestra’s Miami residency was launched in January 2007 during the inaugural season of the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County. Over the course of 14 seasons, The Cleveland Orchestra, an Arsht Center Arts Partner, has served the Miami-Dade community with an array of musical presentations, including a series of subscription concerts, education programs, and community engagement activities. The Cleveland Orchestra’s Miami residency is supported through the generosity of music lovers from across South Florida who believe in the power of great orchestral music for adults and young people alike. Each season of The Cleveland Orchestra in Miami is presented in partnership with the Arsht Center.

Founded in 1918, and now in its Second Century of musical excellence, The Cleveland Orchestra is acknowledged as one of the world’s best orchestras, with The New York Times declaring it the “best in America.” Under its current music director, Franz Welser-Möst, The Cleveland Orchestra continues to set standards of performing excellence and imaginative programming that serve as models for audiences and performers alike. In concerts and education programs in Cleveland, on tour, and in Miami, the ensemble is forging the path forward for symphonic music in the 21st century — attracting young audiences, building new partnerships with the communities it serves, and continuing its long tradition of excellence and musical inspiration.
