Performance Information

The Philharmonix Golden Rule: “Anything goes, as long as it’s fun.”

These members of the Berlin and Vienna Philharmonic Orchestras will leave their tuxedos and all inhibitions behind when they take the Sixth and I stage as the Philharmonix—a rip-roaring, seriously swinging chamber ensemble with repertoire ranging from Satie to Sting, from Brahms’s Hungarian Dances to Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody”—with plenty of jazz, klezmer, Latin music, and more mixed in for good measure. In the band’s own words: “Is it good music? Do we like it? Would we enjoy performing this piece? These are the only criteria—without any thoughts about genre…. When we like something, we’ll just play it!”
