(Philadelphia, November 4, 2019)—String players of all ages have the special opportunity to perform alongside members of The Philadelphia Orchestra and Orchestre Métropolitain de Montréal in a community PlayIN led by Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin, in Verizon Hall at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts on Saturday, November 23, 2019, at 3:00 PM. This shared music-making event will be led by Nézet-Séguin and Philadelphia Orchestra Conducting Fellow Lina Gonzalez-Granados. The program for advanced- and intermediate-level string players (violin, viola, cello, and bass) will include the Prelude from Grieg’s “Holberg” Suite; the first movement from Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 3; the first movement from Mozart’s Eine kleine Nachtmusik; the Élégie (third movement) from Tchaikovsky’s Serenade for Strings; and the Finale from Holst’s St. Paul’s Suite. For more information and to register, visit www.philorch.org/playin.

 

The PlayIN is part of an exciting weekend of events featuring Orchestre Métropolitain de Montréal. For the first time in Philadelphia, Nézet-Séguin will take the stage with Orchestre Métropolitain de Montréal on Sunday, November 24, at 2:00 PM in a program featuring excerpts from Mozart’s La clemenza di Tito (Overture, “Parto, ma tu ben mio,” and “Non più di fiori”), with critically acclaimed mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato. The concert will conclude with Bruckner’s Symphony No. 4 (“Romantic”). Appointed artistic director and principal conductor of the Montreal-based orchestra in 2000, Nézet-Séguin’s contract was recently renewed for life, in an open-ended commitment.
