Tonight! Listen to a LIVE Stream of The Philadelphia Orchestra's Neighborhood Concert at the Kimmel!

If you have tickets, enjoy the pre-concert entertainment at the Kimmel Center's Commonwealth Plaza starting at 4 PM.

The tickets are gone for tonight's Philadelphia Orchestra Free Neighborhood Concert at Verizon Hall. But if you aren't one of the lucky ticket holders, you can still hear the concert LIVE via webcast at 6:30 PM EST at philorch.org/livestream.

If you were able to reserve tickets in advance, plan to arrive as early as 4 PM for a great lineup of pre-concert entertainment before the Orchestra takes the stage! Bring a picnic, and enjoy Broadway songs with Jeff Coon & Fran Prisco, and Bossa Nova with MINAS. After the concert, chanteuse Shakera Jones keeps the party going in Commonwealth Plaza.

Still hoping to get a ticket? There will be a Standby Line for patrons who weren't able to reserve tickets to the concert in advance.

Led by Principal Guest Conductor Stéphane Denève, the concert features:

Williams - Sound the Bells
Higdon - blue cathedral (with LiveNote)
Bernstein - Overture to Candide
Berlioz - "Dream of a Witches' Sabbath," from Symphonie fantastique
Ravel - La Valse (with LiveNote)

Those present in Verizon Hall during the concert will have the opportunity to experience the concert with the Orchestra’s mobile app, LiveNote®, allowing concertgoers to access custom-created information about select works on the program, following along with the music in real time and presenting musical, emotional, and historical highlights.
