The Royal Conservatory of Music | The Philadelphia Orchestra with Yannick Nézet-Séguin (sold out)

April 17 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Founded in 1900, The Philadelphia Orchestra has distinguished itself as one of the leading orchestras in the world through a century of acclaimed performances, historic international tours, and best-selling recordings. Renowned for its luscious string tone, the ensemble is on a path to create an expansive future for classical music. The Orchestra boasts an extraordinary record of media firsts, including being the first symphonic orchestra to make electrical recordings (in 1925), the first to perform its own commercially sponsored radio broadcast (in 1929, on NBC), the first to perform on the soundtrack of a feature film (Paramount’s The Big Broadcast of 1937), the first to appear on a national television broadcast (in 1948, on CBS), and the first major orchestra to give a live cybercast of a concert on the internet (in 1997).

Montréal Maestro Yannick Nézet-Séguin, who just won two 2023 Grammy Awards, is now in his 10th season as Music and Artistic Director of The Philadelphia Orchestra, and his engagement has just been extended through 2030! He joins a remarkable list of music directors spanning the Orchestra’s 120 seasons: Fritz Scheel, Carl Pohlig, Leopold Stokowski, Eugene Ormandy, Riccardo Muti, Wolfgang Sawallisch, and Christoph Eschenbach. He also serves as Music Director of the Metropolitan Opera and Montréal’s Orchestre Métropolitain, which has performed in Koerner Hall on two occasions.

“Mr. Nézet-Séguin drew such intensity from the music that it seemed almost expressionistic.” (The New York Times)

“Nézet-Séguin shows a masterly sense of when to press forward and when to ease up.” (Musical Toronto)
