About the Performance
This year marks the 90th anniversary of the Keswick Theatre, which opened its doors on Christmas Day in 1928. The 1,300-seat theater was the original home of the Old York Road Symphony (OYRS), whose founders included Louis Angeloty, who had been first chair of The Philadelphia Orchestra.
The March 21st concert at the Keswick Theatre will feature works previously performed at the Theatre by the OYRS, which gave its first concert there in the spring of 1933.
