Grant Blvd is an ethically sourced, sustainable clothing store in West Philadelphia that uses upcycled garments and fashion to create employment opportunities and raise awareness for marginalized communities. Orchestra members Gloria dePasquale, Jennifer Montone, Olivia Staton, and Philippe Tondre perform works that connect to Grant Blvd’s mission.

Our City, Your Orchestra is supported in part by the William Penn Foundation, with additional support provided through the Connelly Foundation, PNC Arts Alive initiative, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Presser Foundation.
