Classic Arts News   Philadelphia Orchestra to Play Three Free Summer Concerts
The Philadelphia Orchestra will play three free "Neighborhood Concerts" in the Philadelphia area this summer, the orchestra announced.

The orchestra will perform at the Festival Pier at Penn's Landing in Philadelphia on July 1 at 7:00 p.m.; Whitman Park in Camden, New Jersey, on July 5 at 7 p.m.; and Montgomery County Community College in Blue Bell, Pennsylvania, on July 11 at 7 p.m.

Associate conductor Rossen Milanov will conduct all three concerts. The programs include works by Copland, Duke Ellington, Bernstein, Tchaikovsky, and Prokofiev.

The orchestra has performed the free concerts since 2000, when it revived an older tradition in honor of its centennial. The ensemble's summer performances also include outdoor concerts at the Mann Center for the Performing Arts and a three-week residency at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center in upstate New York.
