Summer Concert Series West Philadelphia Orchestra | Fri, Jul 27, 2018 | 6:30 - 8:00 PM
With a diverse line-up of professional Philadelphia
musicians whose influences range from Sun Ra to Bulgarian brass bands, West
Philadelphia Orchestra is a unique live ensemble in today’s auto-tuned musical
world. They began playing Romanian
ballads, Macedonian folk-dance songs, Bulgarian wedding music, and Klezmer in late
2006, and have continued expanding their repertoire of Eastern European
music. The band also plays original
tunes which blend other sounds, like Jazz and classical, together with traditional
Balkan sounds. As much a community as a
band, WPO’s performances are celebratory events. With blistering beats and walls of brass they
inspire audiences to hold hands, gyrate, howl, and otherwise slip the yoke of
the homogenized culture industry.
