Mark your calendars for “Philadelphia Voices”

Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts the Philadelphia Orchestra.

Tod Machover’s highly anticipated Philadelphia Voices will be presented this April in a series of performances at Philadelphia’s Verizon Hall and New York’s Carnegie Hall. The latest of Machover’s City Symphonies projects, the new work is inspired by conversations, poetry, sound, and music contributed by thousands of Philadelphians contemplating the state of their city (before and after the Eagles’ Super Bowl epic win) and the meaning of democracy today in the birthplace of the U.S. Constitution. Philadelphia Voices was commissioned by the Philadelphia Orchestra and made possible by a grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. Performing alongside the Philadelphia Orchestra, conducted by Yannick Nézet-Séguin, will be the Westminster Symphonic Choir, Sister Cities Girlchoir, and Commonwealth Youthchoirs.
