ALUMNI REUNION (FINAL YEAR)

June 1
Eastern State Penitentiary Historic Site

Some of Eastern State's alumni – former officers and prisoners – return to the cellblocks one last time to share their memories with the public during a Q&A session.

 

It has been nearly fifty years since Eastern State closed its doors and ceased operations as an active prison. Decades have passed since this chapter in the penitentiary’s story came to an end. For the last twenty years, at our annual Alumni Reunion, we have had the opportunity to learn from some of the people who lived and worked here until 1971.

Now, the continued passing of time means the end of another chapter. This year, we host our final Alumni Reunion. While the event is coming to an end, the legacy of our alumni lives on at Eastern State. Their stories are present throughout the penitentiary and heard every day by visitors from around the world.

Please join us as we host our final formal Q&A with Eastern State alumni. The Alumni Reunion is included with admission. Tickets are available online or at the door, subject to availability.

APOCALYPTICA

May 29
​Keswick Theatre

Since they formed in 1993, Finnish orchestral rock band Apocalyptica has released eight studio albums featuring numerous cello-based instrumentals along with some vocal-based songs. Whatever styles they’ve explored - from atmospheric interludes to fast, battering rhythms - their music has been gripping, dynamic and full of melody.

On May 10, 1996 Finnish Rockers, APOCALYPTICA, released their epic debut PLAYS METALLICA BY FOUR CELLOS.  The instrumental cello-driven rock opus changed the landscape of heavy music for years to come. To celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the album, the group re-released and remastered the album in 2016 and added 3 bonus tracks.

Added to this new version are brand new / never-before-released instrumental recordings of “Battery,” “Nothing Else Matters” and “Seek & Destroy.” The album is available on vinyl (2 LP set) for the first time in many years.  

Upon its release, PLAYS METALLICA BY FOUR CELLOS was a new approach to the hits of the biggest metal band the world has seen. Even more APOCALYPTICA created their very own genre and laid the foundation to a career that has lasted for over 20 years so far with millions of records sold and sold out shows around the world.
