About the Philadelphia Virtuosi Chamber Orchestra:
From Carnegie Hall to Rio de Janeiro to Moscow, and through internationally acclaimed recordings, the Philadelphia Virtuosi has dazzled audiences over the past 25 years with their powerful yet whimsical performances. Founder and Music Director Daniel Spalding is recognized as “one of the most innovative conductors on today’s music scene”, and is bringing his ensemble home to Philadelphia for a 2017 concert series that promises to become one of the most desirable happenings in the city. Theatrical, interactive, and daring, the programs are set to compliment the most beautiful venues in the city with fascinating music, matching the drama of classical music with the polished intimate feel of an elegant night club. Get to know the city and meet exquisite artists in post-concert receptions, this time including the brilliant Liliana Ruiz over sangrias and tapas (included in the price of the tickets). If you feel like dressing up think of wearing a spot of red to set the mood for the iconic tunes of Bizet’s opera Carmen (rescored for luscious strings and 50 percussion instruments). Already known to be “as rocking as one can imagine that a chamber orchestra can get” this group is ready to raise the roof and make this evening great fun, one you will not forget. VIP tickets include an exclusive private meet and greet prior to the concert with conductor Daniel Spalding, the best seats in the house, special pre-concert hors d’oeuvres and complimentary cocktails.
This spirited romp was nothing short of breathtaking.
