      The Philadelphia Orchestra "Pops Up" Philly Style in Verizon Hall tonight at 6:30 PM!

      Originally scheduled to perform at Carnegie Hall's Opening Night concert tonight, The Philadelphia Orchestra and Yannick Nézet-Séguin will "pop up" in an unscheduled appearance at the Kimmel Center's Verizon Hall instead of traveling to New York City.

      Free Pop-Up Concert
      Wednesday, October 2 6:30 PM

      Yannick Nézet-Séguin Conductor

      Pre-concert lobby activities begin at 5:30 PM
      A pre-concert "Conduct the PO" event in Commonwealth Plaza will give concert-goers a chance to try their hand at conducting select musicians of the Orchestra.

      Doors to Verizon Hall open at 6:00 PM

      All seating is general admission, and tickets are not required

      Musicians will be dressed in casual attire and the audience is invited to do the same

      The family-friendly program will last approximately 75 minutes with no intermission

      Following the concert Yannick will sign copies of his and the Orchestra's new Deutsche Grammophon CD of Stravinsky's Rite of Spring, in Commonwealth Plaza

      Instruments in hand, rehearsed, and eager to perform, the musicians of the Orchestra will bring the music back home to perform for their loyal Philadelphia audience in a joyful celebration of spontaneous music making. In true Philly style the evening will offer more than a conventional concert. A pre-concert "Conduct the PO" event in Commonwealth Plaza will give concert-goers a chance to try their hand at conducting select musicians of the Orchestra. One lucky participant will be chosen to conduct the ensemble onstage during the concert. Audience members will pick one of the pieces to be performed, and following the concert Yannick will sign copies of his and the Orchestra's new Deutsche Grammophon CD of Stravinsky's Rite of Spring, in Commonwealth Plaza.

      The Philadelphia Orchestra is grateful for continued collaboration with its partner Carnegie Hall, where it has performed since the early 1900s, and deeply regrets not having the opportunity to perform on Opening Night. The Orchestra looks forward with great anticipation to greeting its New York audiences at its three other scheduled performances this season. Carnegie Hall's Opening Night concert was cancelled due to a strike by its stagehands.
