Patron Travel Opportunities

Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin and Your Philadelphia Orchestra are beloved in Philadelphia, across the United States, and around the world. If you enjoy hearing Yannick and the Orchestra perform at home, you will also enjoy special opportunities to travel to hear them perform elsewhere.

We are pleased to offer a series of Patron Tours and Day Trips during the 2019–20 season. The following tours and day trips are open to the public, however donors of $2,500 or greater receive priority invitations.

Patron Day Trips to the Metropolitan Opera 

Join fellow Yannick fans as he leads three exciting productions at the Met. Each Patron Day Trip includes round-trip transportation from the Kimmel Center in a private chartered bus, an intimate three-course brunch at Bar Boulud (across the street from Lincoln Center), and a ticket to the matinee opera performance. We will welcome special guest speakers for engaging pre-opera lectures presented during the bus rides to New York. 

All trips will depart from the Kimmel Center at 8:30 AM.
