Social Series

Our Social Series brings together leading concert artists and Philadelphia’s finest purveyors of food and drink for a series of curated tasting events before the concerts and at intermission. Discover the artisans of our city—including cheesemakers, brewers, chocolatiers, vintners, bakers, coffee roasters, and more—and get to know our community.

Tastings begin 30 minutes before each concert and take place at the American Philosophical Society’s Benjamin Franklin Hall, 427 Chestnut Street. Monday-Saturday concerts begin at 7:30 pm, and Sunday concerts begin at 3 pm.

As participants are confirmed, this page will be updated with the tastings for each concert.
