Drexel University encourages students support Philadelphia Orchestra

    As the Philadelphia Orchestra proceeds with its banktruptcy filing, friends and supporters are pushing for help to keep performances running and get the organization back to its world class reputation.

    Drexel University is one of those friends, according to a letter to students from Provost Mark Greenberg.

     

    The Triangle printed exceprts from the letter, including this one:

    “The Orchestra will survive, but it needs immediate help. As I see it from a Drexel perspective, a friend is in trouble.”

    The orchestra was among the first on the university’s Cultural Passport for students, which grants students free and discounted access to cultural venues around the city.

    Greenberg, also the senior vice president for academic affairs, is encouraging students to use the passport to support the orchestra.
