Did you know that the Fabulous Philadelphians leave the city every summer for a three-week residency in the "Spa City?" Learn more about our 53-year residency with the Saratoga Performing Arts Center (SPAC) and why you should book a trip to hear the Orchestra amidst lush pines trees, sloping lawns, and curative natural springs—all in an acoustically ideal amphitheater designed by Ormandy himself!
When Philadelphia Orchestra Board of Directors member Adrienne Simpson says, “My life has been inundated by classical music,” she means it.
Her father, Eugene Thamon Simpson, started out a concert pianist and bass vocalist. While she was growing up in Glassboro, NJ, he was a chorale director and vocal instructor. “He married his favorite soprano!” says Adrienne, laughing.
It’s a familiar farewell between students at Creative Arts Morgan Village Academy and Music Alive Composer-in-Residence Hannibal.
Hannibal describes the school, located in Camden, NJ, as an “oasis.” He recently met with members of the jazz band to discuss his new work for The Philadelphia Orchestra, Healing Tones––the text of which they helped to inspire.
It’s no secret that The Philadelphia Orchestra spends a lot of time away from Verizon Hall. Every summer it heads to the Mann Center, Vail, and Saratoga. There are regular visits to New York’s Carnegie Hall and community concerts around Philadelphia, plus frequent overseas tours.
