Philadelphia Orchestra to kick off fundraising effort

    The Philadelphia Orchestra will be announcing the details of the upcoming “Listen with Your Heart” fundraising initiative at a press conference this afternoon, with Mayor Michael Nutter in attendance.  

    Nutter has offered his help to the struggling orchestra with it’s fundraising efforts as it seeks protection from Chapter 11 bankruptcy.  WHYY’s Peter Crimmins will be at the event and will have more for us on this story later today.
