By Molly Daly
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – On June 25th, the Mann Center presents “Jerry Garcia: A Symphonic Celebration,” featuring Allman Brothers guitarist Warren Haynes and the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, along with the Joshua Light Show.
Listen to the podcast below…
Mann Center President and CEO Cathy Cahill says it’ll feature songs associated with the iconic Garcia.
“We will be doing a wonderful program, songs and tunes that people know and love from the Grateful Dead that’ll include ‘Truckin’,’ ‘Touch of Gray,’ ‘Sugar Magnolia,’ ‘Casey Jones,’” she says.
And Cahill adds that you’ll see some changes at the Mann.
“New state of the art seats, new lighting. The Great Lawn is now much larger than it was before; we have pushed it closer to our Grand Pavilion stage and have pushed it back. We’ve also taken down fence lines,” Cahill explains.
