When ears imbibe the soothing sounds that spur plant growth, minds bloom into flowers of cultural distinction. Water your mind with today’s orchestral deal: half off one ticket to see Peter Nero and The Philly Pops as they present LolliPOPS & Roses with Jack Jones on Wednesday, February 24, at 8 p.m. The show takes place in the Verizon Hall at the Kimmel Center, and your ticket will be in the seating section that you choose from the links above.
The Philly Pops are led by Grammy-winning pianist Peter Nero. Over the past 30 years, they have put on memorable performances that defy genres and send audiences scrambling for their Yak Bak Power Penz. The LolliPOPS & Roses show keeps the innovation going by introducing the legendary Jack Jones into the mix. He’s won multiple Grammys and stolen an untold number of swooning hearts by combining his unmatched vocal style with an intense crowd rapport, for a well-honed display of masterful showmanship. This is a night of two titans clashing over the sounds of carefully directed instrumentation and technically pitch-perfect crooned melodies, with a sword fight to be held in the courtyard immediately following.
Pick up a few tickets and take all the people you’re dating out for a fanciful night of tunes. The titillating soundtrack will be so powerful it will be impossible for anyone to get mad over some harmless not-so-exclusive relationship. Or bring in your mom’s mom, who has been fawning over Jack Jones since their eyes first met through the picture tube.
Though there are few reviews of The Philly Pops, the Kimmel Center gets top marks from Yelpers, Citysearchers, and two Insider Pagers, who give the center 4.5- to five-star ratings: > * Rest assured that all the companies performing here are professional, and are made up of some very talented individuals.

It’s a beautiful building, a sensation for the eyes. Of course it is a wonderful sensation for the ears as well as the orchestras that play here are top notch. – Renee D., Insider Pages
Verizon Hall at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts
The cello-shaped Verizon Hall serenades eyes with mahogany accents under the 150-foot barrel-vaulted glass ceiling of the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts. With seats for 2,500 audience members, the hall immerses both spectators and musicians in the clarity generated by its premium acoustics, which absorb vibrations from the subway tunnel below with 225 rubber isolation pads and allow for precise tuning with retractable curtains and sound-reflecting panels. Seasoned jazz artist Branford Marsalis confirmed Verizon Hall's sound acumen when he told NPR it is "the best concert hall on the East Coast."
