We organize concerts, have our own Classical music channel on WQHS Radio (Penn’s student-run radio), host “dinner-and-a-concert” events with the Philadelphia Symphony Orchestra, pair music tutors with students who would like to learn specific instruments/voice, invite famous musicians and professors to give talks on campus, and provide various interesting opportunities like “behind-the-scene-tours” of the Philadelphia Orchestra or group chats with concert soloists of the evening.

    We warmly invite you to our first GENERAL BODY MEETING of the semester, which will be held the second week of school. Please check this website for updates on the exact time and place.

    We look forward to seeing you all!
