“As a teacher, I was thrilled for this inspirational and memorable event for my students!” 
-Local Music Teacher 

Every summer, the PlayIN invites local musicians of all ages and abilities to sit on our stage, side-by-side professional musicians from The Philadelphia Orchestra for a collaborative music-making event.  Each year, a specific instrument type or family of instruments is selected to participate, and music is provided to prepare in advance. 

In addition to members of the orchestra, past PlayIN’s have included special guest appearances by: Yo-Yo Ma, Yannick Nézet-Séguin, Marin Alsop, and Kensho Watanabe.
