Never mind that he's been everywhere and accomplished more than most could hope to achieve in several lifetimes. John Williams is still excited to make his Severance Hall debut this Sunday, April 8. A longtime friend of the Cleveland Orchestra, the legendary film composer and laureate director of the Boston Pops Orchestra, 86, said his upcoming visit to Cleveland feels extra special because it's taking place not at Blossom Music Center but, for the first time, at the orchestra's storied main home. "That makes me even more excited," said Williams in Los Angeles. "Severance Hall is one of the beacons of our musical life. It's a return long awaited and I know I'll enjoy it very much."     (Robert E. Klein/AP Photo)
