More than mere neighbors, CIM and The Cleveland Orchestra are now partners. Through a unique, multi-year arrangement, the two pillars of music in Cleveland will collaborate and share resources as never before. CIM’s relationship with The Cleveland Orchestra now goes further and deeper than any other such partnership in America. The primary thrust of the partnership is generating more opportunities for CIM students to perform at Severance Music Center, one of the finest concert venues in the world.  Most years in the past, the CIM Orchestra gave two or three concerts at Severance. This year, under the new partnership, it will give seven, more than doubling an experience CIM regards as vital to a world-class musical education.

"We’re entering a new era with our friends at The Cleveland Orchestra. The time has come for our two storied institutions, which already have so much in common, to work together more closely. We could not be more excited about the impact this will have." ⁠— Paul Hogle, CIM President & CEO
