Philadelphia Orchestra’s last night in Vail

Vail Daily staff report
Vail, CO Colorado

VAIL, Colorado- The Philadelphia Orchestra will perform its last Bravo! concert of the season at the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater in Vail, Colorado Saturday. The orchestra was founded in 1900 and has lead the world for over a century in artistic excellence and community-inspiring education and outreach.

“The Philadelphia Orchestra sound is unique because it has been cultivated for over a century and passed down from generation to generation,” said Bravo! Associate Artistic Director Lynne Mazza.

This unique sound is lead by chief conductor and artistic adviser Charles Dutoit, who has had a long-standing relationship with Philadelphia since his debut with the orchestra in 1980. This summer, The Philadelphia Orchestra is also being led by Associate Conductor Rossen Milanov and Guest Conductor Miguel Harth-Bedoya.

So far this summer, The Philadelphia Orchestra has played to full audiences at the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater, welcoming such renowned soloists as Garrick Ohlsson, Gil Shaham, Yuja Wang and Anne-Marie McDermott in a sold-out all-Gershwin program.

Saturday night, Maestro Rossen Milanov and The Philadelphia Orchestra welcome cellist Alisa Weilerstein to the stage. The program begins at 6 p.m. at the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater in Vail. Tickets are available under the covered pavilion in premium reserved seating for $85 and regular reserved seating for $63. General admission lawn seating is available for $23 and kids 12 years and younger are free!

For a complete festival lineup and to purchase tickets, visit or call 877-812-5700.
