Update: Seats Still Available for Philharmonic Concert at Hill

POTTSTOWN PA – Free tickets remained available as of Friday (July 1, 2022), according to the Pennsylvania Philharmonic, for its scheduled mid-July concert at The Hill School Center for the Arts.

The 70-minute concert, part of the orchestra’s “Inspiration” educational program that will travel to area school districts later this year, in part features Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet and Tchaikovsky’s “Romeo and Juliet Fantasy – Overture,” the “Candide Overture” by Leonard Bernstein, and Ravel’s “Mother Goose Suite.”

Each of those and other selections “celebrate the fact that artists’ creations are often sparked by the works of others,” the Philharmonic’s e-mail said.

Tickets, available at no cost, must be reserved online, here. The Philharmonic, conducted by its Music Director Michael Butterman, will perform July 15 (Friday) at 7 p.m. at the center on The Hill School campus, 860 Beech St.

PA Philharmonic Explores ‘Inspiration’ at Hill School Concert

POTTSTOWN PA – A live orchestral concert featuring the Pennsylvania Philharmonic and its “Inspiration” music education program is scheduled for July 15 (2022; Friday) at 7 p.m. in The Hill School Center for the Arts, 860 Beech St. The event is open to the public, and free to attend with advance reservations. Reservations can be made now at the Eventbrite website, here.

The Pennsylvania Philharmonic has been thinking about all the ways artists inspire one another, promoters said. In performing composers’ music, it also looked at creators in other disciplines – such as theater, poetry, dance, and film – and their efforts to create enduring works. The program includes shared stories of inspiration from artists, composers, and musicians.

Watch a video, above, in which members of the Philharmonic discuss the process of creativity and offering community access to music. See it also at the Philharmonic’s YouTube website, here.

The 70-minute intermission-free concert, conducted by Music Director Michael Butterman, celebrates the connection between music, art, and the written word. It includes works by Prokofiev, Ravel, Beethoven, Mussorgsky, Bernstein, and Tchaikovsky. Concert-goers’ proof of coronavirus vaccination is required for attendance. Masks are encouraged, but not required.

The concert is being made available through leadership contributions by Cody Systems and The Hill School. Additional support is provided by Ellis Investment Partners, Justamere Foundation, SEI Cares, Land-O-Lakes Foundation, and individual supporters of the Pennsylvania Philharmonic.
