  • Audiences will soon be able to gather for Cleveland Orchestra concerts again. The orchestra announced Sunday a 10-week season at Blossom Music Center from July 3 to Sept. 5, with limited admission to allow for social distancing. “We’re expecting, at least in the beginning, to be able to accommodate 3,500 people on the lawn and 1,500 in the pavilion,” said André Gremillet, orchestra president and CEO. “Under normal circumstances you can go all the way up to 15,000 people at Blossom.”
