What You'll Get


Captain America once said, "'Twas music that soothed the savage beast." Although he was talking about his short-lived nemesis Dr. Angry Parakeet, it's just as true for animals of the human persuasion. Soothe your savage insides with today's Groupon: a show at The Mann Center for the Performing Arts. Choose from three options:

Internationally acclaimed singer/pianist/dancer/performer extraordinaire Mark Nadler will be making his Mann Center debut accompanied by the New York Pops for a show entitled Top Hat, White Tie and Tails: Remembering 1935. A stand-out year that gave birth to such hits as “Cheek to Cheek,” “Begin the Beguine,” and “Porgy and Bess,” 1935 will receive the Broadway treatment in a night of explosive performances and incendiary fireworks.

The Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia will gather on the Mann Center stage for an evening of classical music and newfangled excitement. The 33-member ensemble will be led by Dirk Brossé, who will conduct his Philadelphia debut as the Chamber Orchestra’s music director. The group will perform two quintessential works by Mozart. To celebrate Chopin’s 200th birthday, pianist Gabriela Martinez will sprinkle the sounds of Chopin's "Piano Concerto No. 2" into attuned ears. A world-premiere piece by Brossé himself, entitled "Fanfare for Philadelphia," will make its crashing, smashing, Liberty Bell–ringing debut at this show, followed by celebratory sky explosions. Concert-goers will receive a free CD at this performance.

The Mann Center's lovely outdoor setting offers stunning sights and sounds; orchestra seats are located under the covered pavilion. Though the musical stylings onstage offer a heaping helping of ear candy, lip-smacking fine dining is available to please other senses. Come celebrate 75 years of music in the park at the tail end of another spectacular season.

Reviews

The Philadelphia Inquirer featured the Mann Center for the Performing Arts as part of the venue's 75th anniversary. Yelpers give the amphitheater an average of four stars:

  • This year, the Mann is celebrating what it is calling its 75th season … This season may be its most diverse, with alternative rock, strict classical, a bit of poppish classical, old-time psychedelic rock, and even an ivory-tickling former U.S. secretary of state among the scheduled performers. – Robert Strauss, Philadelphia Inquirer
  • It's so nice to grab a bottle of wine and some food, spread a blanket on the lawn, and listen to some classical music with friends. – Edward L., Yelp

About The Mann Center


The Mann Center is a prepossessing structure from anywhere you sit in the semi-covered amphitheater—all huge, rough slabs of timber that evoke the setting for a barn dance held by elegant giants. Even the lawn section isn’t an ordinary lawn: from the top of the steep hill where the theater perches, audiences can see not only the performers lighting up the stage below but also the canopy of trees in surrounding Fairmount Park and the city skyline just beyond.
