We know that now, more than ever, music is an incredibly powerful force for good, for inspiration, and for healing. We've created the Virtual Philadelphia Orchestra to bring music, in video and audio forms, as well as interactive education and enrichment, directly to you.

The Virtual Philadelphia Orchestra is generously funded, in part, by the William Penn Foundation. LEARN initiatives of the Virtual Philadelphia Orchestra are supported by Wells Fargo.
