A Great Trip To See The Orchestra Without Having To Drive

As the world-famous Cleveland Orchestra celebrates its 100th anniversary this season, the Lakewood Division of Aging is pleased to continue providing transportation to Severance Hall for these historic performances. As wonderful as it is to see the orchestra perform, many people find the trip across town to be daunting. If you are a senior, 60 plus, why not allow our drivers to take the aggravation out of the equation? During this 2017/2018 season, the Lakewood Division of Aging will be providing transportation to Friday Matinee performances. We leave the Lawther Center, 16024 Madison Ave. at 9:00 AM, arriving in time for breakfast at Severance by 9:45 AM. Following an informative preconcert talk by one of the orchestra educators, the concert begins at 11:00 AM, and lasts approximately one hour. 

The Friday, November 17th concert will be a memorable performance of Mozart’s Linz Symphony. In addition to this highlight, they will also be performing Gluck’s “Suite from Don Juan,” and Rameau’s “Suite from Dardanaus.” Reservations are currently being taken for this concert, do not delay. The cost for this performance is $25, with payment reserving your seat. The Division of Aging will also gratefully accept a $3 donation to cover the cost of transportation. Please call the Activities Office at 216-529-5005, or email barry.wemyss@lakewoodoh.net for more information. You can make your reservation by coming in to the Lawther Center, 16024 Madison Ave.    

We here at the Lakewood Division look forward to having you join us for this, and all the other concerts this orchestra season.
