Musical Fund Society 200th Anniversary Concert

  • Settlement Music School (map)

Join us in celebrating the bicentennial of the Philadelphia Musical Fund Society with a concert of world-premiere chamber works by four of America’s finest living composers: Tania León, Stephen Jaffe, Roberto Sierra, and Augusta Read Thomas. The Network for New Music Ensemble will premiere a new work by Stephen Jaffe for violin, viola, bass, flute, guitar, harp, and percussion. The newly-commissioned work is rooted in the history of our city, connecting audiences with the rich musical life of past and present Philadelphia.
