(Philadelphia, June 1, 2015)—From its homes in Pennsylvania, Colorado, and New York, The Philadelphia Orchestra will spend the coming months bringing its unique and renowned sound to music lovers across the U.S. Following their 2015 Tour of Europe, the Fabulous Philadelphians return stateside for concerts at the Mann Center for the Performing Arts in Philadelphia’s Fairmount Park (June 23, 25, 26, and July 23, 24, 25), the Bravo!

“This summer The Philadelphia Orchestra returns to cherished locations with our longtime partners, who have grown to become a part of our musical family,” says President and CEO Allison Vulgamore. “We look forward every year to our collaborations at the Mann Center, Bravo! Vail, and Saratoga Performing Arts Center, which are integral to the fabric of our summer communities. Once again, the Fabulous Philadelphians will create meaningful music-making experiences for our audiences here in Philadelphia and across the country.”

“We are so proud of our heritage as the first summer home of The Philadelphia Orchestra here in the City of Brotherly Love for 80 years,” says Catherine M. Cahill, President and CEO of the Mann.  “Their return to the Mann this summer has something for everyone, from the great classics of Tchaikovsky, Beethoven, and Gershwin to the powerful scores of The Godfather and The Fellowship of the Ring to the incomparable Diana Krall. And the setting for these incredible performances just keeps getting better.  Our Grand Lawn features two new state-of-the-art video screens as well as an all-new acoustically superior audio system for truly spectacular nights of music under the stars. We hope you’ll join us!"

“It is a great pleasure and honor to welcome back to Vail, for its ninth residency, the outstanding musicians who create the luxurious sound of The Philadelphia Orchestra,” says Interim Executive Director of Bravo! Vail John Giovando.

“The Philadelphia Orchestra’s performances have delighted audiences the world over,” says SPAC President and Executive Director Marcia White. “We are thrilled to have the privilege of welcoming the Fabulous Philadelphians to our stage, as we have every year since 1966, for yet another season here in Saratoga. Led by inimitable conductors and featuring phenomenal repertory and extraordinary guest artists, this summer’s performances by The Philadelphia Orchestra at SPAC are not to be missed!”

The Mann Center for the Performing Arts is the Philadelphia region’s premier outdoor cultural arts center, offering a diverse season of world-class entertainment. The Philadelphia Orchestra’s summer season opens at the Mann on June 23 with a celebration of Tchaikovsky, featuring Conductor-in-Residence Cristian Măcelaru and Principal Cello Hai-Ye Ni. On June 25 the Academy Award-winning Best Picture film The Godfather comes to life on the big screen with the Orchestra performing Nino Rota’s iconic and haunting score, led by Maestro Justin Freer. On June 26 Măcelaru leads an evening dedicated to George Gershwin, featuring Rhapsody in Blue, An American in Paris, and excerpts from Porgy and Bess and Girl Crazy.

The July 15 concert features the works of legendary film composer John Williams, featuring excerpts from Close Encounters of the Third Kind, a suite from Star Wars, and “Adventures in Earth,” from E.T.: the Extra-Terrestrial. Perhaps not as well known—but just as rich and lyrical—are his orchestral pieces, like his Violin Concerto, performed by virtuoso James Ehnes, and Sound the Bells!, written for a series of concerts during a 1993 tour of Japan with the Boston Pops. On July 17 the Orchestra presents a collection of music inspired by the Bard, from Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet to the Wedding March from Mendelssohn’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Throughout the evening, Shakespearean stage actors present scenes from the plays that prompted the music. The final concert on July 18 celebrates the famed Philadelphia Sound, including works that former Music Director Leopold Stokowski arranged for the Orchestra: Musorgsky’s A Night on Bald Mountain and Pictures at an Exhibition. Augustin Hadelich returns to Bravo! Vail to perform Sibelius’ virtuosic Violin Concerto, a piece that is arguably one of the most difficult in the repertoire.

All Beethoven

July 25 at 8 PM – Saturday evening – Mann Center for the Performing Arts

If ever there was a musician whose battle cry was “freedom” it was Beethoven. His Leonore Overture No. 3 relates the heroic conviction of a woman to free her husband from certain doom. The Piano Concerto No. 2 was composed for his own astonishing virtuoso technique. And the Symphony No. 5 has become so much more than a symphony—its famous first four notes have been turned into a Morse code phrase for “victory.” Its propulsive energy and journey escalate towards a finale that has long transcended the concert hall and given hope to oppressed people everywhere. Come to the Mann to hear again why The Philadelphia Orchestra is supreme in the music of Beethoven.
