The circus is coming to Phoenixville ... kind of.
One of the Pennsylvania Philharmonic's more unique offerings this season is "Cirque de la Symphonie," a combination of acrobatic performers and classical music.
And you start off the New Year with their performance Friday, Jan. 1, 2016 at 2 p.m. at Phoenixville Area Middle School.
Tickets are $41 each and can be purchased on-line at http://www.paphilharmonic.org/ or by calling 610-401-3650.
It was hailed by the Cincinnati Enquirer as a "crowd-pleasing hybrid of circus and fine art."
But it won't by the symphony's only performance in Phoenixville this season; or in Pottstown for that matter.
On Sunday Feb. 21, at 2 p.m. the Pennsylvania Philharmonic will perform "Four Season of Vivaldi and Piazzolla," with Philadelphia Orchestra concertmaster David Kim performing as soloist and interpreting the iconic works of Vivaldi and Tango master Astor Piazzolla.
On Saturday, April 9 at 7:30 p.m., the Philharmonic's movie soundtrack show, "Symphonic Soundtracks," will come to Pottstown High School.
And on Friday, June 3 at 7:30 p.m. the Philharmonic's final performance of the season, "Beethoven Masterworks," will be performed at Pottstown High School.
