Join us in celebrating the bicentennial of a Philadelphia musical treasure with a concert of world-premiere chamber works by four of America’s finest living composers. Performed by four leading Philadelphia ensembles, the newly-commissioned works are all rooted in the history of our city, connecting audiences with the rich musical life of past and present Philadelphia.
