Exterior At Night

The exterior of the building was designed in a neoclassical style, as per John Severance's request. Mr. Severance wanted to create a an elegant building that used the finest materials possible and had all of the advances and technology of the time. At the opening gala concert, Dudley S. Blossom Sr, the vice president of the Musical Arts Association, declared "in the last analysis, a gift to all the people of Cleveland. It is they who are the real beneficiary; it is they who are going to come here day after day and year after year to enjoy the comfort, the charm, and the loveliness of this beautiful hall."
