Just in: Philly stage home concert in place of Carnegie date

Dear Colleagues of the Board, Orchestra, Emeritus Board, Volunteer Committees, Maestro’s Circle, and Staff:



This morning we made a joint decision with our partner Carnegie Hall to cancel tonight’s Opening Night concert due to a strike by its stagehands.  While we deeply regret not having the opportunity to open Carnegie’s 2013-14 season, our musicians are rehearsed and eager to perform, and so in true Philly style we will “bring the music back home” for a Free Pop Up Concert TONIGHT in Verizon Hall!  Yannick is incredibly excited for this fun opportunity!  It all begins at 5:30pm – please see the attached news release for full details.


We are working now to get this news out through conventional media, social media, and by going directly to the 150,000+ households in our database.  And please, SHARE this news with your own networks.  If you are on social media our hashtag is #PhilOrchFreePopUp.


I look forward to seeing you tonight!


Yours in Music,

Allison Vulgamore

  1. Way to go, Philly! First we got Dvorak’s American on a plane, now New Horizons at Verizon. Who said classical music can’t be spontaneous, exciting, or relevant?
