The Philadelphia Orchestra kicks off a new season with an opening night concert and gala Wednesday, September 25th at the Kimmel Center for Performing Arts.
For the first time ever, the Philadelphia Orchestra and Opera Philadelphia will collaborate on a production which will be presented in 2014.
Executive vice-president Ryan Fleur says the Orchestra is breaking ground with Rite of Spring, again, recording it for Deutsche Grammophon, under the baton of Yannick Nezet-Seguin.
The concert begins at 4pm on MLK Day at Martin Luther King High School, and the orchestra’s new music director, Yannick Nézet-Séguin, will be there.
The Philadelphia Orchestra is ready to kick off its new season, including a liver performance of the score to accompany the film “West Side Story.”
The Orchestra Association has renewed the contract of Allison Vulgamore, at $450,000 per year.
Yannick Nezet-Seguin, the next music director of the Philadelphia Orchestra, gave a preview of the 2012-2013 season at the Kimmel Center last night.
