Walk through the doors and experience the grandeur of the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts, located along the Avenue of the Arts in Center City. Home to the Philadelphia Orchestra, a number of performances are presented almost nightly here and might include the Pennsylvania Ballet, Peter Nero and the Philly Pops, French Circus, a jazz quartet, or family-friendly events.
The main stage in Verizon Hall features 2,500 elegant red mahogany seats with adjustable acoustical panels and is shaped like a cello. The Center also features the smaller 650-seat Perelman Theater with a rotating stage—ideal for chamber music, dance, and drama. The Center's acoustics are state-of-the-art, and the top floors of the building offer breathtaking views of the city. The PECO Cafe, tucked inside the Commonwealth Plaza (which surrounds the performances stages), offers coffee and light snacks.
