So happy to listen to the Philadelphia Orchestra perform under Maestro Yannick. We were very impressed with the wonderful music-making and the rapport between Orchestra and Conductor. The program was ideal: Peter Maxwell Davies' An Orkney Wedding, Bruch's Scottish Fantasy and the Mendelssohn Scottish Symphony....More

We attended the Philadelphia Orchestra in December and the show and performance were excellent. No Parking as parking at the site is limited, so we ended up Ubering instead of trying to find local parking. Aside from Parking limitations excellent venue.

Philadelphia Orchestra led by Yannick is quite possibly the best in the US, and in the top10 of the world. They are to be experienced.

On a whim last year we decided to go over and see if we could get tickets to a concert. I never knew they had "community" tickets for sale! What a great idea to get people to see a great orchestra and hear fantastic music....More
