On Saturday, January 30, 2010, the Philadelphia Orchestra celebrated its 153rd Anniversary Grand Concert and Ball at the Academy of Music. Guests enjoyed a performance by world-renowned singer-actor Sting. He performed with the Philadelphia Orchestra and with his own quartet of musicians, conducted by David Hartley. The classical portion of the program showcased Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos, chief conductor and artistic director of the Dresden Philharmonic, leading the Philadelphia Orchestra in a program of masterpieces featuring guest tenor Juan Diego Flórez. The Academy Ball, chaired by Mrs. Fred L. Hudson, III, and Mr. Joseph A. Frick, immediately followed the performances and was held at the Park Hyatt Philadelphia at the Bellevue.
