PlayIN with The Philadelphia Orchestra

Come sit side-by-side with members of The Philadelphia Orchestra at one of the popular PlayIN events being presented this season. Musicians of all ages across a range of abilities are invited to join the Fabulous Philadelphians onstage—Philly style!—in a shared music-making event that will excite and inspire.

Participants are encouraged to share their experience before, during, and after the event using social media (#PhilOrchPlayIN).

Each PlayIN will be filmed and / or photographed to potentially be used for future promotion.

The Philadelphia Orchestra's PlayINs are funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.
