By Steve MaitlisThe Philadelphia Youth and Symphony Orchestra will be “warm and funeral-inspired” for the commemoration of the Philadelphi Symphony’s centennial in 2019, a source familiar with the arrangements said on Tuesday.
The Philadelphis Symphony has a long history of providing a celebratory and uplifting concert for musicians, and the symphony has played at the Philadephia County Fairgrounds and other venues in recent years, as well as the Philidelphia Zoo and a large-scale event in New York City, the source said.
“This year, we’re going to be performing some of the most meaningful music ever written, and will be working closely with our staff to create a very meaningful and personal experience for the orchestra and its fans,” the source told The Sport, speaking on condition of anonymity.
“The orchestra will be a warm, fun and beautiful tribute to the music that makes our community special, and we want to send a message to all the musicians that they can have their own personal memorials in Philadelphia and in other cities, but it’s not just a piece of music.
It’s an experience that is very meaningful for all of us.”
Philadelphia Orchestra chief operating officer Kevin Murphy said in a statement that the Philademathia Symphony will be performing at the park for the first time in its 70-year history, and he said the concert will be designed to bring the orchestra’s musical tradition to life.
“Philadelphias music is a reflection of the city and the city is a tribute to its citizens, its rich history and its rich musical traditions,” Murphy said.
“The orchestra and the Philadinphia Symphony will continue to celebrate the past, and to look to the future.”
The concert will mark the first of the orchestra that dates back to 1869, and is made up of five members of the Philadelphia Orchestra, including the conductor and two soloists.
The orchestra is expected to take the stage in the evening, with the concert likely to be led by the orchestra in the morning.
The music will feature classical and jazz standards from the Philasophical Series, which the orchestra began in 1885 and which has been in use since the 1930s.
Murphy said the orchestra will have a series of rehearsals to prepare for the concert, which is expected on Tuesday morning.
In the future, the Philadalpha Symphony is expected have an expanded repertoire, including several new pieces from the Classical Series, and perhaps a new concert in 2020 or 2021.
“We’re hoping to have a number of new pieces in the future,” Murphy told The Sports.
“Hopefully we’ll have some new works coming out, but I think we’re not going to stop playing.”
