The Philadelphia Orchestra heads outdoors to the Mann Center for the Performing Arts for three evening programs on June 15th, 16th, and 17th.

One piece you’ll hear on the first night is Beethoven’s Symphony Number 9, with its famous “Ode to Joy.”

“The delightful and ever-popular ‘Peter and the Wolf,’ which of course is a great showcase for all sections and players of the orchestra.  But we’re also looking forward in that program to Regis Philbin and his wife Joy to narrate.”

And wrapping up the week will be an evening featuring critically acclaimed trumpeter Chris Botti. The shows start at 8pm, and you can find out more at www.manncenter.org.
