Philadelphia Orchestra Playing National Anthem at Tonight’s Phillies Game

Seven musicians from The Philadelphia Orchestra brass section will toot the “Star Spangled Banner” at tonight’s Phillies game at Citizen’s Bank Park. The ensemble includes Jennifer Montone, Jeffrey Lang, and Jeffry Kirschen on French horns, Robert W. Earley and Darin Kelly on trumpets, and Blair Bollinger and Brian Santero on trombones. In case the names don’t ring a bell, this is the same group who did that pop-up performance on a delayed plane last year that spread like wildfire across the Internet.

The engagement marks the homecoming of the Philadelphia Orchestra, which just returned from trips to Colorado and Asia, and the beginning of a busy week: On July 23rd and 24th, catch them at the Kimmel Center, where they’ll perform “A Tribute to the Beatles.” Then, on July 25th and 26th, they’ll perform “PIXAR in Concert.”

Tickets to all shows can be found here, and  you can still snag seats to tonight’s game—when the Phillies take on the San Francisco Giants—here.
