Set to be the Philadelphia Orchestra's party of the season, the 162nd Academy of Music Anniversary Concert and Ball celebrates the grand heritage of the "Grand Old Lady of Locust Street", the place where the orchestra first developed and perfected their world class sound. To mark the special occasion, the ensemble's music-director-in-chief Yannick Nezet-Seguin welcomes Oscar, Olivier, Tony, Golden Globe and Emmy Award-winning acting icon Helen Mirren for an unforgettable white-tie evening of soul-stirring music and spoken word. Proceeds from the annual event go towards the ongoing preservation and restoration of the Academy of Music's building and grounds.
