Though it’s hard to improve upon the experience of taking in a concert by the world-renowned Philadelphia Orchestra, this week the orchestra offers up the opportunity to catch the beautiful music in relaxed come one, come all atmosphere.
On Thursday, February 27 at 6:30 p.m. our city’s orchestra debuts a brand-new way to engage with its concert series during TuneIN, an informal early-evening concert at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts’ Verizon Hall.
Taking up the baton, conductor Stéphane Denève will preview selections from upcoming primary series concerts including works from Poulenc’s Aubade and Stravinsky’s The Firebird.
In addition to the orchestral pieces, the 75-minute intermission-less performance also includes guest appearances from pianist Eric Le Sage and dynamic dance troupe Philadanco.
With the early start time, happy-hour pricing at the lobby bars both before and after the performance and a casual dress code, this new concert format is set to appeal to a wide range of audiences — from post-work professionals to culture-seeking families.
Tickets, $45, are all general admission and are available online or by calling 215-893-1999.
Don’t miss this night of casual world-class entertainment.
