The Philadelphia Orchestra’s Free Neighborhood Concert Series Returns With Performances At Curtis Arboretum And Penn’s Landing, July 26-27
The best part? You won’t have to spend a dime.
For its twelfth consecutive year, the Free Neighborhood Concert Series returns on Thursday, July 26 and Friday, July 27 at two great outdoor locations in the Philadelphia region.
At 7 p.m. on Thursday, July 26, the orchestra will perform at the Curtis Arboretum in Wyncote for the first time. Enjoy the beautiful greenery and don’t forget to bring your blankets and lawn chairs. (Did someone say picnic?)
The series continues at 8 p.m. on Friday, July 27 at the RiverStage at Penn’s Landing. You won’t want to miss this great performance with beautiful views of the waterfront during sunset. The concert will also kick off the Friday Night Lights firework series.
The orchestra has always been dedicated to bringing their music to their audiences in new and interesting ways and can’t wait to perform around the Philly region. Allison Vulgamore, president and CEO of The Philadelphia Orchestra, says, “Although the Orchestra travels the world, there is truly no place like home.”
Also see the Orchestra this summer outdoors at their summer home, the Mann Center.
