Philadelphia’s robust network of arts & culture organizations, large and small, will be celebrated every week as they perform in the center of the city. Shows will range from orchestral serenades and ballet ensembles to jazz instrumentals and beyond. In support of local restaurants, guests are encouraged to dine al fresco with takeout meals from nearby eateries. A special menu will be offered at the Air Grille, and cocktails made with Maker’s Mark Bourbon and Michelob Ultra Organic Seltzer will be available for purchase to guests 21 and older to enjoy within designated areas in the park. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own blankets or chairs, as seating is limited.
Tonight, The Philly POPS little BIG Band will tune up for their Lights Up! Showtime! season with hits inspired by Motown and Sinatra. Guests will want to get up and dance as the group plays favorites like RESPECT, A Change is Gonna Come, Fly Me to the Moon and The Best is Yet to Come! The 10-piece ensemble will feature guest vocalist Paula Holloway, who dazzled audiences at the POPS recent July 4 performance. She has toured with Patti LaBelle, Anita Baker and more.
Everyone in attendance will have the chance to win special prizes, like tickets to upcoming performances, and a full season subscription.
