An eclectic ensemble made up of some of Philly's finest and wildest musicians, the West Philadelphia Orchestra offers up music that is rooted in Eastern European folk traditions, and blended with free jazz, punk, and blues, among other genres.

Kick back, relax, and enjoy some of Philadelphia’s best live bands Wednesday evenings in the Penn Museum’s beautiful outdoor Stoner Courtyard. The eighth annual Summer Nights Concert Series brings an eclectic lineup of performances—with the sounds of Creole Zydeco, Latin Jazz, Middle Eastern folk, Pre-Revolutionary Cuba, and more. The galleries stay open, with an optional guided tour (topics vary) at the set break. Outside, the Pepper Mill Café offers light foods and beverages.

$10 General Admission; Pay-what -you-wish PennCard Holders, HUP/CHOP Employees with ID and children under 6.; FREE Penn Museum Members.
