A Landmark of Art and Culture in Philadelphia!
When the Philadelphia Orchestra's need for a new home met with the former-mayor Edward G. Rendell's plan to promote the cultural scene with a state-of-the-art venue, the Kimmel Center was born! The Center boasts a full schedule of a variety of different kinds of performances, from chamber music arrangements prepared by the Philadelphia Orchestra, to stagings of new plays by famous American playwrights, to full blown musical productions, to the best of romantic and classical music by the great composers. How can you beat a wonderful venue with some of the best music that the Greater Philadelphia Area has to offer? This is a great night waiting to happen - check their events page!
