Fall is here, time to hear the music!

Fall is here, time to hear the music!

Fall has arrived which means cold weather is on the way. Not to worry, nothing warms the soul more than some musical talent! Good thing there is plenty in Philadelphia these upcoming weeks. The excitement of the Papal visit will soon be over but your musical passport through Open Arts is just beginning!

Start your musical journey with a laugh at Bo Burnham's comedy selection on October 1 at the Keswick Theatre. He incorporates music, theatre and stand-up for one complete comedic performance. And guess what? He’s only 18! That means young artists like yourself can relate to him and quite possibly gain some inspiration for your own creative endeavors.

Once your abdominal is sore from laughing so much, relax and enjoy the harpist, Edmar Castaneda on October 3. As a Colombian-born musician, his performance will transform The Painted Bride Art Center into a warm oasis. If you have never listened to a live harpist, you definitely want to check out the talents of Edmar Castaneda.

 If you’re conflicted on whether to attend Opera on the Mall or Edmar Castaneda on October 3rd, don’t fret because you can still see Verdi's La Traviata on October 2, 4, 7, 9, and 11. Giuseppe Verdi’s classic opera will be performed at the Academy of Music. Of course, if you’re interested in seeing a broadcasted version of this opera then come to our first event of the College Night Series, Opera on the Mall. (If you’re looking for outdoor entertainment where blankets, popcorn and pumpkin spice lattes are encouraged- this is it.)

Last but certainly not least is the live performance of Musicians from Marlboro I, on October 9 at the Benjamin Franklin Hall. This exciting performance will keep you at the edge of your seat and wanting more. The lively music is sure to warm your soul. Don’t just take it from me, see or rather hear for yourself!

With all of these exciting and heart warming musical experiences coming up, we’re reminded that while we’ll miss summer, fall will be pretty great! This season won’t miss a beat.
