The Chamber Orchestra Opening Night Pre-Concert Party

(On occasion I will run photos provided to me, especially on days when I have the PhillyMag.com column of course that’s not today.)

On Monday, September 27th, The Chamber Orchestra opened their season with new Music Director Dirk Brossé with a performance at the Perelman Theater at the Kimmel Center for Performing Arts. Afterward a VIP reception was held upstairs in the Hamilton Garden.
