    Name: The Philadelphia Orchestra: Beyond Baroque
    Date: August 1, 2019
    Time: 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM EDT
    Event Description:
    Leopold Stokowski, known for his long association with The Philadelphia Orchestra, was a cultural pioneer, bringing the latest in art and music to Philadelphia in the early 1900s and presenting it in bold, new ways – most notably his incredible interpretations of famous baroque works.
    This robust program features Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D, which has become a vastly popular piece, especially in the horror genre, and has been prevalent in pop culture since well before the sound film era. Although it has been a revered work in the classical cannon for more than a century, Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D saw renewed popularity from an arrangement by Stokowski and The Philadelphia Orchestra used in the 1940 animated film Fantasia.
