Penn Museum kicks off summer concert series with West Philadelphia Orchestra
Wednesday nights this summer will get a punch of musical energy thanks to Penn Museum’s outdoor concert series. The weekly events bring an eclectic line-up of bands to the Stoner Courtyard, beginning on June 15th with West Philadelphia Orchestra.
The Balkan folk / brass band will be releasing a new album called Tour de Filli later this summer and have promised to share some of the newer songs with the alfresco crowd next week.
Following WPO is a selection of performers ranging from Latin ensembles to world fusion vocalists. Highlights include soulful singer-songwriter Ginger Coyle on June 22nd, Louisiana-style dance band Zydeco-a-Go-Go on July 20th and El Caribefunk from the Caribbean Coast Region of Colombia on August 17th.
