The Play-In’s the Thing
Do you want to play with The Philadelphia Orchestra?
Actually, if you play a woodwind or brass instrument, harp or double bass, you can.
On February 15, the Orchestra presents the first of this season’s popular Play-Ins, in which musicians of any age and any level of ability get to play side by side with members of Fabulous Philadelphians.
The Play-Ins begin Saturday, February 15, at 6:30 PM at the Orchestra’s home in the Kimmel Center with woodwind players.
The three other Play-Ins and their locations are:
Harps, Friday, March 14, at 6:30 PM at Centennial Hall at the Haverford School
Brass, Thursday, April 10, at 6 PM at Temple Performing Arts Center
Double Bass, Saturday, May 3, at 5:30 PM at the Kimmel Center
Even better, participants will be stars of both the stage and the (small) screen. Each Play-In will be filmed with embedded point-of-view cameras to capture the participants’ experience and featured on the Orchestra’s website. And everyone can be a participant—viewers of the event can share their reactions via a special Audience Cam.
