Yannick Nézet-Séguin will be there. Anne-Sophie Mutter will be there. The musicians known as the Fabulous Philadelphians will be there.
The 2013-14 Opening Night Concert of The Philadelphia Orchestra is two days away and excellent concert-only tickets are available. Opening Night is not solely a Gala—it is an opportunity for anyone who loves the Orchestra to celebrate what promises to be an amazing season. Tickets start for as little as $50.
The concert on Wednesday, September 25, at 7 PM features an all-Tchaikovsky program with the incomparable virtuoso Anne-Sophie Mutter performing the composer’s Violin Concerto. Also on the program are Marche slave and Romeo and Juliet.
Yannick and Anne-Sophie toured Germany, Austria and Luxembourg in April with the London Philharmonic Orchestra and by all accounts their musical chemistry created onstage fireworks, which will be continued and transformed on stage at the Opening Night Concert with The Philadelphia Orchestra.
As a prelude, whether you are going to the Gala or the concert only, we invite all concert-goers to join us for a 6 PM pre-concert reception in the Kimmel Center’s Commonwealth Plaza where together we will raise a glass of Champagne in a toast to the new season.
Don’t miss your opportunity to be a part of the spectacular opening and the kickoff to the cultural season.
