Amanda Hall

Philadelphia Orchestra First Associate Concertmaster Juliette Kang is soloist in a performance of Max Bruch’s Scottish Fantasy, as WRTI’s Philadelphia Orchestra in Concert broadcast airs a 2018 concert from the Orchestra’s British Isles Festival. Listen on Sunday, September 13th at 1 PM on WRTI 90.1 and Monday, September 14th at 7 PM on WRTI HD-2.

Bagpipes often play at police and firefighter funerals, but they also play at celebrations.  And in Philadelphia, The Philadelphia Police and Fire Pipes & Drums play everything from "Amazing Grace" to the Rocky theme, to music in concert with The Philadelphia Orchestra.


Three bagpipers from the Philadelphia Police and Fire Pipes & Drums join The Philadelphia Orchestra this week in performances of Maxwell Davies’ An Orkney Wedding, with Sunrise.
