Saturday, October 28th was a beautiful Fall morning for a walk in the park. And for some lucky park-goers, a free concert too!
Sister Cities Girlchoir sang in Palmer Park in Fishtown as part of the City of Philadelphia’s Performances in Public Spaces initiative managed by the Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy. Girls from the Saturday Academy in Philadelphia were joined by their sisters from multiple after-school programs in Camden for a fun morning of performances. Some of the Sister Cities dads even participated in a “Daddy Dance-Off” for the chance to win free movie tickets!
The concert featured spirituals, pop songs, and American folk songs (think: “your toe bone’s connected to your…foot bone…!)
The concert also featured the puppets that the students made this summer at ArtYard.
Families brought lawn chairs and blankets for this fun outdoor concert, and many people passing through for their morning coffee couldn’t help but to stop for a few songs.
This was the first program-wide performance of the season. Stay tuned for details about our upcoming performance at the Theatre of Living Arts in South Philly, and enjoy the pictures below from our concert at Palmer Park!
