Yannick Nezet-Seguin conducting The Philadelphia Orchestra

The Philadelphia Orchestra


The Philadelphia Orchestra is one of the world’s preeminent orchestras. It strives to share the transformative power of music with the widest possible audience, and to create joy, connection, and excitement through music in the Philadelphia region, across the country, and around the world. Through innovative programming, robust educational initiatives, and an ongoing commitment to the communities that it serves, the ensemble is on a path to create an expansive future for classical music, and to further the place of the arts in an open and democratic society.

With only eight music directors piloting The Philadelphia Orchestra through its history, the ensemble has maintained an unparalleled cohesiveness and unity in artistic leadership. This rich tradition is carried on by Yannick Nézet-Séguin, who began his tenure as the Orchestra’s Music Director in September 2012.

Through concerts, tours, residencies, and recordings, the Orchestra is a global ambassador. It performs annually at Carnegie Hall, the Saratoga Performing Arts Center, and the Bravo! Vail Music Festival. The Orchestra also has a rich touring history, having first performed outside Philadelphia in its earliest days. In 1973 it was the first American orchestra to perform in the People’s Republic of China, launching a five-decade commitment of people-to-people exchange.

Askonas Holt is proud to collaborate closely with the Orchestra on their international touring across the globe.
