May 22, 2016 - Away We Go! Transportation by Land, Sea, and Air in Song
Take a journey with PhilHarmonia!
Captained by their fearless artistic director, Mitos Andaya Hart, the singers of PhilHarmonia perform in an afternoon of musical adventure aboard a replica of the 102-foot schooner Diligence!
Journey from the frozen climes of Thule and the spewing volcanoes of Popocatepetl and Fogo to the rocks of Yosemite. We'll travel by land, air and sea via the music of Weelkes, Bartok, Whitacre, James Taylor and more - from old sea shanteys to an exclusive world premiere by American composer Fred Cohen.
Make a day of it! A reception will follow the concert, and your ticket includes a full day pass to the Independence Seaport Museum. Enjoy indoor and outdoor interactive exhibits or climb aboard and explore the historic cruiser Olympia and Becuna submarine!
The museum opens at 10am and is located next to the Spruce Street Harbor Park, where you can grab lunch from any number of delicious Philadelphia food carts, play life-size chess, relax in a hammock, and more!
Tickets in advance are $18 ($13 for students and seniors), and $23 at the door ($18 for students and seniors).
The Independence Seaport Museum is accessible via SEPTA (2nd and Market station). Parking is available at the Independence Seaport Museum (paid separately). Street parking is also available.
