The Top 3!

And now, our podium finishers! They get a VIP tour of places like Severance Hall, the Ohio State University, and the Terminal Tower, led by Ohio celebrities Drew Carey and Macy Gray. (I'd pay money to see that duo give a tour. :)) https://static01.nyt.com/images/2018/01/23/arts/23orchestra1/23orches...
