When the Cleveland Orchestra was founded in 1918, it had plenty of talent but no place to play. It wouldn't be long, however, before a wealthy local named John Severance set in motion the construction of what would come to be known as a city landmark: Severance Hall. Today, it's considered one of the most stunning performances spaces in the country.
Severance Hall was built after John Severance lost his wife. Both of them had supported the development of a professional performance space for the Cleveland Orchestra, and when his wife passed, he felt even more passionate about finishing the project to honor her. His efforts, combined with money raised by the public, amounted to $7 million to construct the Hall.
