The Philadelphia Orchestra is coming to SPAC and we have a family 4-pack of lawn tickets for EACH of these upcoming performances! Want to win? Scroll through to find out how!


AUG 2: Opening Night – Tchaikovsky Spectacular with the famous 1812 Overture, live cannons and fireworks:

The first week of The Philadelphia Orchestra’s August residency will flip tradition on its head. Typically performed as a send-off to the Orchestra on the season finale concert, Tchaikovsky’s famed 1812 Overture will be performed on Opening Night, complete with fireworks and live cannon fire, as the kick-off to the 2017 Russian Festival.

Widely regarded as Russia’s greatest composer, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s works live on today as some of the most popular classical orchestral music ever written. Two of his most famous works can be heard on Opening Night: excerpts from his three-act story ballet The Sleeping Beauty, featuring dancers from New York City Ballet performing Peter Martins’ thrilling choreography, and the 1812 Overture. The concert will begin and end with arrangements of the Andante cantabile from Tchaikovsky’s String Quartet No. 1 for string orchestra and a Symphonic Synthesis from Musorgsky’s opera Boris Godunov by the Orchestra’s illustrious former Music Director, Leopold Stokowski.

AUG 5: Movie Night – E.T.

Steven Spielberg’s cinematic masterpiece E.T. The Extra–Terrestrial will be shown on four HD screens and accompanied by a live performance of John Williams’s Academy Award®-winning score. One of the brightest stars in motion picture history, E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial follows the moving story of a lost alien who befriends a 10-year-old boy.

AUG 12: Movie Night – Raiders of the Lost Ark

The film that gave the world one of its greatest movie heroes, Indiana Jones, will make its SPAC debut as John Williams’s epic score is performed live. Set in 1936, a professor of archeology and “obtainer of rare antiquities” Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford) is tasked by U.S. Army Intelligence to recover the legendary Ark of the Covenant before it falls into the hands of the Nazis. Armed with his hat, whip and wits, Jones must face formidable enemies – and impossible odds – to save the day and the world.
