Our friends at SOUTH are hosting an information session on August 15th at 5pm for all musicians interested in hearing more about this once-in-a-lifetime concert. Learn more about getting involved with the Broken Orchestra project, with complimentary food and drink from this great Philly jazz spot. Come for the info, catch up with your network and stay for the regular Tuesday night jam at 7pm.
WHAT IS IT?
Symphony for a Broken Orchestra is an initiative committed to re-imagining sustainable instrumental music education. David Lang will write a visionary new composition featuring the PSD’s broken instruments, to be performed by an orchestra of 400 musicians from across Philadelphia. Following the concert, Temple Contemporary, in collaboration with instrument repair professionals, will repair all of the fixable instruments and return them to the schools. Repair kits will be installed in every public school offering instrumental music classes, allowing broken instruments to be repaired with future support from donations to The Fund for the School District.
Major support for Symphony for a Broken Orchestra is provided by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage, with additional support from the Barra Foundation.
