The Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts is one of Philadelphia’s preeminent facilities for creative expression. Between the 2,500-seat Verizon Hall (home of the Philadelphia Orchestra), the 650-seat Perelman Theater (popular for recitals of chamber music, dance, and drama), and the vast, welcoming Commonwealth Plaza, this is a truly impressive center for cultural performance and engagement. The full calendar of events runs the gamut of mediums, but certain yearly events are not to be missed. The popular Broadway Series always brings a touch of the Big Apple to town, while a program of free events (from international musicians to local youth ensembles) makes the center available to everyone. With this many options—and a busy calendar year-round—there’s always an opportunity to get involved with Philadelphia’s vibrant cultural scene.
