PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – There’s something magical about music under the summer sky that makes a concert that much more special.

Listen to the podcast…

That’s why the Mann Center has opened their new “Skyline” stage this summer. Located at the top of the Mann’s grounds, you see the performers, the sky and a fabulous view of Center City, all at the same time.

Mann Center CEO Cathy Cahill says it’s like the much-heralded performances in New York’s Central Park.

“There is no covering for the audience in this regard…it’s more like Central Park, where we have general admission. People can just spread out their blankets, lie on the lawn, stand up and dance…in other words, there is no seat,” Cahill explains.
