About Us

The Philadelphia Orchestra annually touches the lives of more than 1 million music lovers worldwide through its live performances (more than 300 concerts and other presentations each year), publications, recordings, and broadcasts. A major subscription season is presented in the Orchestra’s brand-new home, the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts, from September to May each year, including expanded education and community partnership programs. The Philadelphia Orchestra’s schedule each summer includes a month-long outdoor season in Philadelphia at the Mann Center for the Performing Arts, followed by a three-week residency each August at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center in upstate New York. In addition, the Orchestra appears annually at New York’s Carnegie Hall, performing encores of some of its acclaimed concerts from Philadelphia.
