CONCERT HIGHLIGHTS

Mann Center for the Performing Arts—Philadelphia—June 24, 26, & 27; July 18, 19, 30, & 31; & August 1

The Philadelphia Orchestra’s summer season begins June 24 at the Mann Center with multi-platinum selling singer-songwriter Ben Folds, featuring a high-energy performance of his new piano concerto, along with orchestral arrangements of many of his pop hits, conducted by Steven Reineke. Two days later, on June 26, singing sensation Il Volo, one of PBS’s hottest artists, makes its Mann Center and Philadelphia Orchestra debut.  Conductor Bramwell Tovey leads the Orchestra  and  Wolf Trap Opera artists Tracy Cox,  soprano; Virginie Verrez, mezzo-soprano; Robert Watson, tenor; and Ryan Speedo Green, bass-baritone; along with the Choral Arts Society of Washington, in Beethoven’s mighty Ninth Symphony, on June 27.

The Orchestra returns to the Mann on July 18, for Gladiator Live, the first of three movie nights at the venue. See Gladiator Live with The Philadelphia Orchestra and The Philadelphia Singers Chorale performing Hans Zimmer and Lisa Gerrard’s epic score. Witness this Best Picture and 5-time Academy Award-winning movie on a giant screen as you've never seen or heard it before. Justin Freer conducts the Orchestra, joined by vocalist Clara Sanabras and The Philadelphia Singers Chorale, David Hayes, Music Director.

The following evening, July 19, is the culminating event in the Philadelphia Freedom Festival, which honors 19th- century African-American civil rights pioneer Octavius V. Catto and commemorates the 50th anniversary of the passage of the Civil Rights Act. The concert includes a world premiere performance of a commissioned work by Philadelphia composer Uri Caine, The Passion of Octavius Catto; Dr. Marvin Sapp, guest soloist; Barbara Walker, soprano; André Raphel, conductor; Rev. Nolan Williams Jr., conductor and Festival Artistic Director; a gospel choir; and O.V. Catto Lodge #20.  

West Side Story won 10 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, and the film comes to life on the huge screen with Leonard Bernstein’s electrifying score played live by the Orchestra on July 30, conducted by David Newman. With Jerome Robbins's breath-taking choreography and such memorable songs with lyrics by Stephen Sondheim as “Maria,” “Jet Song,” “Tonight," and “America,” this will be an evening the entire family can enjoy. There’s more movie magic on July 31 when the Orchestra, conducted by David Newman, performs Michael Giacchino’s score to Star Trek Into Darkness while the film unspools on the big screen.

Philadelphia Orchestra broadcast partner WRTI-FM invites its listeners to choose the repertoire for an August 1 People’s Choice concert led by Associate Conductor Cristian Măcelaru, hosted by WRTI’s Gregg Whiteside, and featuring the debut of young violinist Eunice Kim.
