We're happy to announce our new Philadelphia Orchestra Broadcast Series - one example of what your support provides. You've probably heard recordings of the "Fabulous Philadelphians" on WRTI, and know what a tremendous orchestra we have here in Philadelphia. And if you've been lucky enough to hear them live, there can be no doubt that you know that we're blessed with one of the finest orchestras in the world. We believe that all our listeners should have the opportunity to experience Maestro Yannick Nezet-Seguin and the Fabulous Philadelphians firsthand.
