Mann President Catherine Cahill says the major teams have all joined forces, along with the Philadelphia Orchestra, for this world premiere event.

“This concert will showcase Philly’s best sports moments on a giant video screen, set to great classical music favorite hits,” Cahill explains.

The concert will be narrated by none other than the voice of the Eagles’ Merrill Reese, who isn’t the only big name scheduled to appear.

“We’re going to have a parade of stars at the end of the evening, so a number of key retired, beloved athletes will be on our stage. I can’t reveal any of the names — that’s part of the big surprise,” Cahill says.
