Due to the setup for the Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts (PIFA) in the Kimmel Center lobby there have been changes made to the locations of the box office lines, subscriber services table and donor services table. The box office lines will form beginning at the box office near the Information Desk. There will be an Usher to assist in managing the box office line. The subscriber services table will be located behind the staircase near Door C. The eZseatU table will be located at the far end of the PECO bar across from the staircase by Door C. The donor services table will be located in front of the staircase across from Door B.

The Brandenburg Concertos of Bach are the flagship works of the Baroque era. Virtuosic soloists from The Philadelphia Orchestra will be featured in four of these sparkling and propulsive works. The performance is further enhanced by Baroque specialist Nicholas McGegan who brings a fresh and animated approach to these familiar masterworks. Even the famous "Air on the G String" from Bach's Third Orchestral Suite will sound like never before.
