In a capstone to our Leonard Bernstein centenary celebration, we present his quirky, complex, irreverent, and very humorous operetta Candide, with orchestral staging.
2019-20 SEASON ON SALE NOW
Yannick Nézet-Séguin’s eighth season as music director takes us on a journey from Beethoven to some of the most exciting new voices of our day. We invite you to join us!
Under the baton of guest conductor Damon Gupton, The Philadelphia Orchestra and the All-City High School Orchestra sat side-by-side for a special collaborative learning experience this past Saturday, March 19. The rehearsal, part of the Orchestra's deepened partnership with the School District of Philadelphia and the All-City Orchestra, sat developing musicians alongside their professional counterparts for one-on-one coaching. Together, the students and Philadelphians performed Copland's "Hoe Down," the first movement from Dvořák's Symphony No. 9 ("From the New World"), and selections from Saint-Saëns's Symphony No. 3 ("Organ").
