BRAVO!

Philadelphia Style - - Style -

From his Kim­mel Cen­ter stu­dio, Mu­sic Di­rec­tor YAN­NICK NÉZETSÉGUIN hits all the right notes as he read­ies for his sixth sea­son with the Philadel­phia Orches­tra.

Proud­est mo­ment: Whether it is a unique event such as the visit of Pope Fran­cis, or a stand­ing ova­tion after a sub­scrip­tion con­cert at the Kim­mel, or a side-by-side with young mu­si­cians from our city, I am al­ways very proud to be at the helm of this in­cred­i­ble Orches­tra, and to be an adopted Philadel­phian! Philadel­phia is so…: Wel­com­ing! It is ac­tu­ally not too big or too small and a bit like my native city of Mon­treal, which is one of the rea­sons why I im­me­di­ately felt good here. Sum­mer in the city: Jog­ging along the Schuylkill River Trail. There’s no bet­ter way to see the city, get some sun, and stay fit. Per­for­mance rit­u­als: Be­fore con­certs hold the ring I in­her­ited from Mar­cel Nézet, my beloved grand­fa­ther who passed away in 1997. He pro­tects me al­ways. Style es­sen­tials: My fa­vorite store is Bar­ney’s. I al­ways go to The Rit­ten­house Spa & Club --Hair by Paul Labrecque for hair­cuts with Roxy Bren­nan or Et­tore Mas­troddi. I like to get mas­sages here, too. Top ta­bles: I go to Parc after con­certs; Helm for cre­ative food and cozy at­mos­phere; and Bar­clay Prime for the best steak. I also like Wm. Mul­herin’s Sons. What’s next: My sixth sea­son (al­ready!) with the Orches­tra might be our most ex­cit­ing.

Six­ers side­line reporter

MOLLY SUL­LI­VAN goes off-air at the Art Mu­seum to talk beauty es­sen­tials, Allen Iver­son, and why Philly sports fans are the real deal. Proud­est mo­ment: May 12, 2016. It was the day I be­came Is­abella’s mom. Philadel­phia is so…: My style. Our city is built on hard work and I love the en­ergy. Sum­mer in the city: My ul­ti­mate sum­mer would be spent re­port­ing deep into the NBA Play­offs. Be­yond that, whether it’s with fam­ily or a day trip with friends, I al­ways look for­ward to go­ing down the Shore. And few things are bet­ter than go­ing for a run in the heart of the city dur­ing the sum­mer. Fa­vorite Philadel­phia ath­lete: I have two: Dr. J and Allen Iver­son. They were ac­tu­ally my first two in­ter­views for Com­cast Sport­snet in April 2012. What makes Philly great: Best sports fans in the world. They’re loyal, pas­sion­ate, and have the knowl­edge to back it all up. The Six­ers have also ref­er­enced “Philly hard” as their style of basketball, which re­flects the city’s tough­ness. Top ta­bles: My start­ing five would be Parc, Bar­clay Prime, Rouge, the lounge sec­tion of Aqimero, and Talula’s Gar­den, with Scar­petta as Rookie of the Year, El Vez as the sixth man, and Assem­bly to wrap it all up. Lo­cal land­mark: The Cathe­dral Basil­ica of Saints Peter and Paul. It’s where Fa­ther Den­nis Gill blessed my mar­riage to Tommy French, our daugh­ter was bap­tized, and it con­tin­ues to be our church.
