Join Your Philadelphia Orchestra on Tuesday, October 13, at Applebrook Golf Club for the 29th annual Golf Classic benefitting the Orchestra’s education and outreach programs. 

This day on the green offers avid golfers and novices alike the opportunity to indulge in the sport of golf, and enjoy an elegant cocktail reception, dinner and silent auction, all the while supporting The Philadelphia Orchestra. Proceeds from the Golf Classic support critical access to music and music education for young people throughout our community. Free school concerts, in-school programs for underserved students, free neighborhood concerts throughout the region, and free tickets for public school teachers and area college students are just a few examples of programs that are funded through this annual event. 

Held at Applebrook Golf Club in Malvern, PA, this course has consistently been ranked by Golf Digest among the Best in State. It is a “walking” golf club and maintains one of the finest caddie programs in the country.
