The Philadelphia Orchestra to play Beatles classics with Joan Osborne and Rodney Crowell at The Mann on June 30th
Down The Abbey Road, a “symphonic celebration of The Beatles’ masterwork commissioned by The Mann,” will take place on June 30th at the outdoor Fairmount Park venue. The show is an edition of PECO Pops, a concert series presented by the energy company. The evening will feature The Philadelphia Orchestra, as well as Joan Osborne, Rodney Crowell, and James Nash and the Nashvillains.
A “re-imagining of The Beatles,” the Thursday night show will highlight the talents from multiple generations. Performing a version of the final recording by the group who inevitably influenced the music they’ve created, contemporary artists such as 7-time Grammy nominee Joan Osborne and Grammy-award winner Rodney Crowell will be present on stage, as will Americana outfit James Nash and the Nashvillains. This is not to forget featured performers The Philadelphia Orchestra, who will be conducted by Lucas Richman.
