Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia Performance
The Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia presents the second season of its outdoor concert series in beautiful gardens across the city, “Orchestra in the Garden.”
Performances of “Franklin’s Playlist”, the final installment of the series, will take place at Bartram’s Garden and Villanova’s Stoneleigh Garden. This piece gives audiences a window into the musical tastes of America’s Founding Fathers in Philadelphia. A selection of Mozart, Corelli, Saint-Georges, and even a Scottish folk tune highlight some of the varied influences that served as a soundtrack to this era. Principal Cello Branson Yeast is highlighted performing Boccherini’s 7th Cello Concerto.
The concert begins at 7 pm, but audiences are welcome to arrive up to an hour before to enjoy the beautiful flora and architecture of the Garden. Tickets for these performances are available through the registration link or by calling 215-545-1739. Prices begin at $30 for Lawn seating, where picnics are encouraged.
$2 tickets for SW residents and ACCESS cardholders are available via the registration link.
