Open-air Af­fairs

Where Philadelphia - - WHERE NOW PHILADELPHIA -

Bring a bot­tle of pinot noir and some snacks to en­joy pic­nic-style on the lawn at The Mann on June 24, when mem­bers of The Philadelphia Or­ches­tra en­hance an open-air screen­ing of Peter Jack­son’s “The Lord of the Rings: The Re­turn of the King” by play­ing Howard Shore’s score live on-site.

This is just one of the very many, very cool live mu­sic of­fer­ings hosted by The Mann dur­ing summer months. Its an­nual fes­ti­val, this year themed “New Fron­tiers: Launch, Ex­plore, Dis­cover” links sci­ence and the arts with a se­ries of per­for­mances on and off-site, in­clud­ing Star Rhap­sody at The Fels Plan­e­tar­ium at The Franklin In­sti­tute June 6-7.

Main stage tal­ent runs the gamut from Bell Biv DeVoe June 1, to a sold- out twofer from Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds June 2-3, to Sigur Rós June 16 and Steve Miller Band June 27. Fair­mount Park, 5201 Park­side Ave.
