Celebrate the rich history of the home where The Philadelphia Orchestra first made its sound famous—the glorious “Grand Old Lady of Locust Street.”
Do you want to play with The Philadelphia Orchestra?
Actually, if you play a woodwind or brass instrument, harp or double bass, you can.
On February 15, the Orchestra presents the first of this season’s popular Play-Ins, in which musicians of any age and any level of ability get to play side by side with members of Fabulous Philadelphians.
The Play-Ins begin Saturday, February 15, at 6:30 PM at the Orchestra’s home in the Kimmel Center with woodwind players.
The three other Play-Ins and their locations are:
Harps, Friday, March 14, at 6:30 PM at Centennial Hall at the Haverford School
Brass, Thursday, April 10, at 6 PM at Temple Performing Arts Center
Double Bass, Saturday, May 3, at 5:30 PM at the Kimmel Center
Even better, participants will be stars of both the stage and the (small) screen. Each Play-In will be filmed with embedded point-of-view cameras to capture the participants’ experience and featured on the Orchestra’s website. And everyone can be a participant—viewers of the event can share their reactions via a special Audience Cam.
