Our City, Your Orchestra

Our City, Your Orchestra connects The Philadelphia Orchestra with communities through music and dialog and celebrates the diversity and vibrancy of the Philadelphia region. Musical selections are chosen specifically for, and in collaboration with, each organization to showcase its unique mission, and interviews help tell the inspiring stories of each location.

New episodes will be available on this page on the 1st and 15th day of each month.

Our City, Your Orchestra: Paul Robeson House and Museum

Paul Robeson was a Renaissance man—an actor, athlete, lawyer, singer, author, activist, and more—who called Philadelphia home from 1966 to 1976. In this episode, members of the Orchestra visit the Paul Robeson House and Museum in West Philadelphia to learn more about Robeson and his life’s work fighting against injustice.
