Day 93/100
Severance Hall
This is the home of the famous Cleveland Orchestra - one of the top 5 in the country (and some say the world!) It’s located on Euclid right in between the Wade museum cluster and Case campus. Lucky Case students get to walk past this everyday! I’ve been here twice to hear Rachmaninoff’s piano concertos and Handel’s Messiah. I really like this little Wikipedia blurb:
"Cleveland is the smallest city amongst the traditional "Big Five"  orchestras; the others are based in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, and  Chicago. However, musicians in Cleveland are often treated as local  celebrities, and, much like sports heroes elsewhere, fans seek  autographs after performances and greet musicians on the street.  Clevelanders are proud that their city boasts an orchestra rated on par  with or above those in much larger cities.[4][5] In the 1960s fans were known to “have airport rallies when the  orchestra comes home from tour [and] chant, ‘We’re the best! We’re the  best!’ and carry placards reading ‘Bravo!’” [4]" 
(You’ll notice that I skipped Day 92 - I just realized that I counted Day 47 twice. Whoops, but what a nice surprise!)

    I love the Cleveland Orchestra so much, you guys. When we were kids, our schools did once-a-year field trips to hear...
