Join us on Sunday, January 19th from 1 to 3 PM as WRTI's Philadelphia Orchestra in Concert broadcast explores the interactions between two bold visionaries who made incalculable contributions to the cultural life of Philadelphia between the two world wars: Leopold Stokowski and Dr. Albert C. Barnes.

The Philadelphia Orchestra in Concert broadcast for Sunday, May 5th at 1 PM brings us music by two composers born almost 150 years apart, and both of whose music expresses profound religious faith.

Join us on Sunday for The Philadelphia Orchestra in Concert on WRTI. This re-broadcast brings us a lucky survivor among Mozart’s earlier symphonies, many of which were forgotten after his death. The Symphony No. 29, which Mozart composed at age 18, is full of charm, elegance, and irresistible high spirits, and Donald Runnicles, is on the podium.

Today, a symphony orchestra is most often - but not always - led by a conductor.  As WRTI’s Susan Lewis reports, in some cases, the concertmaster may lead the group – but not from the conductor’s podium.

Join us for a Philadelphia Orchestra in Concert re-broadcast from last February, that looks back to a time when concerto soloists and members of instrumental ensembles led their colleagues, while also performing themselves.

At the end of Sunday’s half marathon in Paris, three familiar faces from The Philadelphia Orchestra cross the finish line, running arm in arm, on what wasn’t a day of rest from the Orchestra's 2015 Europe tour. The Philadelphia Inquirer’s David Patrick Stearns reports from the sidelines.
