Blossom plans dinner gala, picnic contest to mark 50th season. Reported by Kerry Clawson. Fifty years of Cleveland Orchestra concerts at Blossom Music Center is such a big cause for celebration, the milestone will be feted with “A Symphony of Food and Fine Wine” benefit July 13, hosted by Blossom Friends of the Cleveland Orchestra. If the big-ticket gala isn’t your thing, Blossom Festival-goers can enter their own gourmet picnics in a free contest July 15 at the Schumann “Spring Symphony” concert.
