Women innovators and creators take center stage as Yannick Nézet-Séguin and The Philadelphia Orchestra present composers, conductors, instrumentalists, vocalists, and thinkers in programs that showcase rarely heard works of the past and inspiring music of today. A world premiere by Valerie Coleman during opening weekend sets the stage for a celebration of women’s voices, and Gabriela Lena Frank joins the Orchestra as composer-in-residence.

Due to rapidly evolving developments, and in accordance with the City of Philadelphia’s recommendation that all large gatherings be suspended to limit community transmission of COVID-19, all scheduled Philadelphia Orchestra rehearsals, performances, and events through May 10, 2020, are cancelled. Learn more
