Philly Music

A request for assistance: I'm requiring my students to attend and review two "classical music" concerts, broadly defined. I'm putting together a list of possible concerts, and I thought I would see if anyone out there in the ether knew of interesting concerts in the Philadelphia area this fall. Obviously I have the schedules for the mainstream performance organizations, but if you are involved in something interesting that I might not find out about through normal channels, I'd love to hear about it. Just leave a comment!

There can be different objectives for students. How about focus upon blacks in classical music performance - musicians, composers, conductors?
This is a season calendar but take a close look at Imani Winds in October.
