The Magic City: Sun Ra Arkestra at University City (Philadelphia) on July 24

SOURCE: Published: 2010-07-16
The last time we heard from the Sun Ra Arkestra was on May 25th at Johnny Brenda's when Ars Nova Workshop hosted Maestro Marshall Allen's 86th birthday celebration. Through two high-energy sets that had the audience either dancing feverishly or contemplatively traversing the spaceways, the group demonstrated the unrivalled expertise, joy, and passion that have been the foundation for their musical journeys since Sun Ra founded the Arkestra in the mid-1950s.

At 6PM on Saturday, July 24, the Sun Ra Arkestra will be offering another hometown performance! This free outdoor concert will be held in University City, on 40th Street between Walnut and Locust Streets, in the green space directly behind the Walnut Street Free Library. We hope to see you there for this special mid-summer show by Philadelphia's much loved pioneers of jazz and experimental music!
