Orchestra to Hit the Right Notes at Fundraiser

Jason DePue. You know him as a member of the first violin section of the Orchestra. Don Liuzzi. He’s the Orchestra’s highly regarded principal timpani and a DePue of sorts when he takes the stage with Jason as a member of the DePue Brothers Band.

Hear these musicians play a vivid blend of bluegrass, classical, and rock when they headline the Volunteer Committees for The Philadelphia Orchestra’s On That Note festive fundraiser benefiting the Orchestra on Friday, April 4. In addition to Jason, the band includes his two brothers, Wallace and Zach, each a classical virtuoso as well.
