The Philadelphia Orchestra Performs Outdoors this Summer at the Mann Center and Penn's Landing Starting Tuesday, June 23
The Mann Center for the Performing Arts, one of the city’s favorite outdoor music venues hosts a glorious summer season complete with musical acts by some of the biggest names in the biz and the city, too.
The Philadelphia Orchestra will return to its summer home — The Mann Center — to play six concerts throughout June and July.
The Orchestra will start its Mann Center residency tomorrow, June 23 with Tchaikovsky with Fireworks, a concert featuring some of Tchaikovsky’s most-known works — Swan Lake, 1812 Overture and more. The show concludes with a fireworks show high above the Fairmount Park concert venue.
The series continues this week with a screening of The Godfather on Thursday, June 25. The Philadelphia Orchestra will perform the score as the classic film plays.
On Friday, June 26, the concerts wrap up for June (but take note, the shows continue in July!) with A Night of Gershwin with The Philadelphia Orchestra. Listen to the talented musicians perform celebrated songs by the Gershwins, including excerpts from Porgy and Bess and An American in Paris.
Tickets prices vary depending on the show, but all tickets start at just $20 or $25. Tickets are availableonline.
Bonus: Did we mention that guests of The Mann Center can pack a picnic (even beer and wine!) for the shows, too? Deal!

Beyond The Philadelphia Orchestra’s alfresco concerts at The Mann, folks can also catch the group outdoors at Great Plaza at Penn’s Landing for a free neighborhood concert on Thursday, July 2 in celebration of the July 4th festivities in Philadelphia.
Don’t miss the chance to take in our city’s Orchestra in the great outdoors.
