West Philadelphia Orchestra Performs at Suburban Square     |     Fri, Aug 24, 2018     |     6:30pm to 8:00pm
 


With a diverse line-up of professional Philadelphia
musicians whose influences range from Sun Ra to Bulgarian brass bands, West
Philadelphia Orchestra is a unique live ensemble in today’s auto-tuned musical
world.  They began playing Romanian
ballads, Macedonian folk-dance songs, Bulgarian wedding music, and Klezmer in
late 2006, and have continued expanding their repertoire of Eastern European music.  The band also plays original tunes which
blend other sounds, like Jazz and classical, together with traditional Balkan
sounds.   As much a community as a band,
WPO’s performances are celebratory events. 
With blistering beats and walls of brass they inspire audiences to hold
hands, gyrate, howl, and otherwise slip the yoke of the homogenized culture
industry.
