Season Highlights Include:
Handel's immortal oratorio as you've never experienced it! One of music's greatest Christmas traditions comes to life, with Yannick leading a brilliant array of singers and musicians. Our soloists include the exciting Baroque specialist Carolyn Sampson, lyrical countertenor Christophe Dumaux, the versatile Jonas Hacker, and the brilliant Philippe Sly, beautifully supported by the Westminster Symphonic Choir.
This is the holiday concert, combining treasured yuletide favorites with the brilliant virtuosity of The Philadelphia Orchestra. Many people look forward to this festive season highlight all year. (Maybe Bramwell Tovey isn't really Father Christmas, but are they ever seen in the same room together?) Make it your family tradition!
Bugs Bunny at the Symphony II celebrates the world's most beloved Looney Tunes and their legendary stars projected on the big screen—Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Elmer Fudd, Pepe Le Pew, Tweety, Sylvester, Wile E. Coyote, and Road Runner—while their extraordinary original scores are played LIVE by The Philadelphia Orchestra.
Two great artforms, both requiring agility, creativity, and a lifetime of practice, come together in this thrilling evening featuring Cirque de la Symphonie. Breathtaking acrobatics fly above the Orchestra, accompanied by stunning symphonic repertoire. The program features aerialists, contortionists, dancers, strongmen, and special surprises. Audiences were mesmerized when Cirque de la Symphonie made its debut in Verizon Hall in 2014. They are back this season for another set of heart-stopping, gravity-defying shows.
