West Philadelphia Orchestra: Summer Courtyard Concert Series- Free and Open to the Public!
With a diverse line-up of professional Philadelphia musicians whose influences range from Sun Ra to Bulgarian brass bands, West Philadelphia Orchestra is a unique live ensemble in today’s auto-tuned musical world. They began playing Romanian ballads, Macedonian folk-dance songs, Bulgarian wedding music, and Klezmer in late 2006, and have continued expanding their repertoire of Eastern European music. The band also plays original tunes which blend other sounds, like jazz and classical, together with traditional Balkan sounds. With blistering beats and walls of brass, they inspire audiences to hold hands, gyrate, howl, and otherwise slip the yoke of the homogenized culture industry.
The Arts Council of Princeton and Princeton Shopping Center present the 32nd annual Summer Concert Series, featuring the best in local and regional jazz, folk, world, rock and blues. Join us every Thursday, 6–8 pm, from June 22–August 24, 2017, at the Princeton Shopping Center, 301 N. Harrison Street, Princeton, NJ. Don’t forget to bring a lawn chair!
