Rehearsing Philadelphia: The Public Orchestra
Cherry Street Pier
April 8-9 | 8pm
April 10 | 3pm

The first ever, Philadelphia Public Orchestra, along with composers, Ann Carlson, Sun Ra Arkestra, Ursula Rucker Xenia Rubinos, Ari Benjamin Meyers and musical director, Anthony Tidd.

About Orchestra
The culminating module is Orchestra, a group of people coming together to create art.

Could this unusually composed group be a metaphor for society at large? Responding to an open call in the community, the first Public Orchestra has been formed.

The Public Orchestra is inclusive of many varied musical practices and instruments in Philadelphia, not just the traditional Western musical practices normally associated with the term, "orchestra."

From the harp to french horns to to Philippine stings, come hear the sounds of the artists that make up Philadelphia.

About Rehearsing Philadelphia:

Created by Ari Benjamin Meyers and jointly produced and presented by the Curtis Institute of Music and Drexel University’s Westphal College of Media Arts & Design, this large-scale public project explores how we can come together as a city through musical rehearsal.

The future will be rehearsed, not perfected. Rehearsing Philadelphia re-examines the rehearsal processes which allow people to act together and be empowered to create new realities.
