The Philadelphia Orchestra presents TeenTix, a ticket program for middle and high school students aimed to provide low-priced tickets. For select concerts, the Orchestra makes a limited number of $10 seats available for Middle School and High School students throughout the 2017-18 season.
Here is how the program works:
Tickets: All tickets must be purchased in person with the student present at the Kimmel Center Box Office between the hours of 10:00am and 7:00pm. Tickets are $10 and will be made available the day of the performance for the dates listed below. Only one ticket per student may be purchased and students must present their school ID at the box office window - sorry no exceptions.
Seating: Seating is at the discretion of the Box Office. Seat locations will be throughout the hall.
Parents: A parent or guardian is permitted to purchase a $10 ticket if they would like to attend the concert with their child. Seating with your child is also at the discretion of the Box Office, and not guaranteed.
Concerts: Available concerts through TeenTix are intended to offer the most tickets possible, however tickets are subject to availability.

Hear! Hear the pipes are calling! These are the first Philadelphia Orchestra performances of Peter Maxwell Davies’s sprightly composition, inspired by the high-spirited Orkney Islands wedding of friends and featuring, yes, a bagpipe solo. First Associate Concertmaster Juliette Kang is the violin soloist for Bruch’s fantasia of traditional folk songs from the Highlands and beyond. Mendelssohn took a walking tour of Scotland as a young man and returned home with the first strains of his “Scottish” Symphony—one of his most cherished works.

Out of respect for the safety of our patrons, the Thursday, February 8, 2018, 7:30 PM performance of Mozart and Mahler has been canceled. This decision was made after evaluating numerous factors related to the Eagles Super Bowl Parade that would make it challenging for our patrons and Orchestra musicians to attend the concert. The Friday matinee and Saturday evening performances of this program will go on as planned.
Once more, one of America’s most acclaimed and most frequently performed living composers, Philadelphian Jennifer Higdon, graces us with a brilliant new work, this time for those stalwarts of the brass section, the trombones and tuba. Hear them shine in this rare turn in the spotlight. Beethoven’s Eighth Symphony may seem overshadowed by the magnificent Ninth that followed, but there’s compositional genius (and humor) to burn here. Zoltán Kodály’s Dances of Marosszék are the rural counterpart of Brahms’s more urbane Hungarian Dances; they make wonderful bookends for this strikingly original program.
These concerts will be LiveNote enabled.
Michael Tilson Thomas returns to conduct Tchaikovsy’s “Pathétique” Symphony.
Additional dates may be released at a later time.
