To date, a banner season for Cleveland Orchestra

CLEVELAND (AP) — It's turning into a banner season for the Cleveland Orchestra.

The orchestra says it's on track to set a season record for ticket revenue for its Severance Hall performances.

Sales are up 24 percent over last year. They're on pace to set a season record of $7.6 million.

The orchestra was helped by sales of $2.8 million during the popular holiday time performances in November and December, up 62 percent from last year.

The Severance Hall season runs from September through May.
