What’s better than taking in a concert by the world-renowned Philadelphia Orchestra? Catching the beautiful music for free.
On Wednesday, November 6 at 6:30 p.m. our city’s outstanding orchestra is set to impress new audiences during a free neighborhood concert at Temple University’s Performing Arts Center.
Taking up the baton for his first neighborhood concert since becoming the orchestra’s music director, Yannick Nézet-Séguin will continue a tradition that began in 2000, and has since brought free concerts to such neighborhoods as University City, Upper Darby, East Falls and Rittenhouse Square.
After playing a free show at Penn’s Landing this past July, and performing a free impromptu concert in October, the November concert offers up yet another opportunity for the local community to see one of the city’s most incredible ensembles completely free of charge.
Welcoming one and all to show, audiences can expect a family-friendly program that is set to include Bernstein’s Overture to Candide, Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet, Saint-Saëns’s “Bacchanal” from Samson and Delilah, and Ravel’s Bolero.
Tickets are completely free and seating is on a first come, first served basis. Since the theater holds room for a set number of audience members — up to 1200 — tickets are required.
Reserve a seat online, by calling 1-800-298-4200 or in person at the Liacouras Center box office at 1776 N. Broad Street.
Concert tickets can be reserved through the Temple Performing Arts Center starting Wednesday, October 16 at noon.
Note the date now, and don’t miss this night of world-class entertainment at no cost.
