We're welcoming 2022 with a Philadelphia Orchestra rebroadcast of 2018's New Year's Eve concert that takes you from the shimmering grandeur of Vienna, to the bright lights of Broadway, to the serene beauty of Helsinki. Listen on WRTI, Sunday, Jan. 2nd at 1 PM and Monday, Jan. 3rd at 7 PM on WRTI HD-2.

Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts. Violinist Kimberly Fisher is soloist.

We're so lucky to live and work in a city whose cultural crown jewel is one of the world’s greatest and storied orchestras: The Philadelphia Orchestra. For more than a century, this legendary orchestra has been a cultural ambassador to the world, its concerts sold out, from New York to Paris to Berlin to Vienna to Shanghai, to Tokyo, to wherever it travels.

As we ring in a new year, get ready for new broadcasts of The Fabulous Philadelphians in concert on WRTI with host Melinda Whiting. Susan Lewis is producer/lead interviewer.
