The Philadelphia Orchestra Musicians will hold pop-up community concerts on their 2019 Day of Music
To show their appreciation for the local community, the Philadelphia Orchestra Musicians (POM) will host a day of free pop-up concerts later this month, with the goal of spreading “the joy and sense of meaning that music can bring to our lives.” The fifth annual Day of Music on Monday, September 23 will feature small-ensemble performances throughout the Philadelphia area, with venues ranging from the Franklin Institute Atrium to SEPTA’s Jefferson Station.
With a total of 32 concerts on the schedule, from Center City to South Jersey, POM hopes to reach as many community members as possible with these up-close-and-personal musical experiences. It’s likely the only day of the year you can witness a cello duo as you grab your morning coffee, spend your lunch hour with the sweet sounds of the famous Wanamaker organ, and end your evening with a string quartet in a historic church.
