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.
