the Mann & The Philadelphia Orchestra
Yannick Nézet-Séguin, conductor
Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin and The Philadelphia Orchestra will take the stage in the TD Pavilion at the Mann on Saturday, May 15, to perform for something that’s been missing for more than a year: a live audience. The Philadelphia Orchestra and the Mann have partnered to present a free thank-you concert, Hail to the Heroes: A Concert of Gratitude, for the frontline responders, healthcare professionals, and all manner of essential workers who have done so much to keep the region safe and productive throughout the pandemic.
Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin will lead the Orchestra in a program including Bill Conti's Theme from Rocky, James Weldon Johnson's popular anthem "Lift Every Voice and Sing," and Tchaikovsky's Polonaise from Eugene Onegin. Plus, two new compositions by Valerie Coleman and Vivian Fung, written to honor our frontline heroes.
