West Philadelphia Orchestra
Made up of a diverse and accomplished lineup of Philly musicians, West Philadelphia Orchestra is an unusual ensemble in today’s musical world. They began playing Romanian songs, Serbian brass band tunes, Macedonian folk-dance songs, Bulgarian wedding music, and various klezmer tunes in late 2006, and have continued expanding and refining their sound and repertoire. As much a community as a band, WPO’s liveshow always feels like a celebratory event, even in a concert setting. With their pounding drums and shimmering brass sounds, they inspire audiences to hold hands, dance, and sing along.

7:15- 8:15
ADVENTUREDRUM
ADVENTUREDRUM is a new dance band led by Philadelphia percussionist Christopher Sean Powell (Need New Body/Man Man). This community-based project brings together local musicians, performers, and artists to explore rhythms constructed from sampled sounds, exotic percussion, synthesizers and drum kits. Merging new sounds and ideas with traditional drumming, this is a dance band for the future. These are the drums of tomorrow…today!
