The Wilma Theater exists to present theater as an art form, engaging artists and audiences in an adventure of aesthetic philosophical reflection of the complexities of contemporary life. The theater’s mission is to produce thoughtful, well-crafted, productions of intelligent, daring plays that represent a range of voices, viewpoints, and production styles. Students can get involved through a variety of internships and fellowships or as volunteers.
Renowned for its distinctive sound, desired for its keen ability to capture the hearts and imaginations of audiences, and admired for an unrivaled legacy of “firsts” in music-making, The Philadelphia Orchestra remains one of the preeminent orchestras in the world.
The Volunteer Committees for The Philadelphia Orchestra are comprised of dynamic and devoted Orchestra enthusiasts who are dedicated to supporting the Orchestra in such areas as audience development, educational programs, fundraising, community relations, and special events. Volunteers have sponsored concerts, provided financial support to encourage young artists, raised funds to purchase tickets for students, and established funds for solo performances by the concertmaster and first-chair members of the Orchestra. Volunteers have also contributed to the expansion of the orchestral repertoire by underwriting several commissions of new works for the Orchestra throughout the years.
