The Magic of SPAC Continues with the Philadelphia Orchestra



The Philadelphia Orchestra at SPAC!

AUGUST 5-22

“Renowned for its distinctive sound, desired for its keen ability to capture the hearts and imaginations of audiences, and admired for an unrivaled legacy of firsts in music-making, The Philadelphia Orchestra remains one of the preeminent orchestras in the world. While wholly committed to the exploration of classical music and repertoire, the Orchestra also continues to develop compelling programs that resonate with contemporary audiences. The Philadelphia Orchestra is focused on the future while inspired by a rich tradition of achievement and seeks to not simply sustain the highest level of artistic quality, but to challenge and exceed that level by creating a powerful musical experience for audiences around the world.” –SPAC, Saratoga Performing Arts Center
