The Orchestra’s Young Friends program began about five years ago as an effort to attract more young concertgoers. “We wanted to break down some perceived barriers to concertgoing,” Philadelphia Orchestra Vice President of Marketing Janice Hay says. “Before launching the program we talked to a number of young professionals and found out many of them didn’t know anything about The Philadelphia Orchestra. They weren’t willing to pay for something they weren’t familiar with. They had perceptions that concerts were always sold out, or not affordable. In addition, many people thought you had to dress up to go to a concert and felt the Kimmel Center might be an uptight scene. But it isn’t.”

The Young Friends program was the result. With free membership and the ability to purchase up to two tickets at a reduced rate for most concerts, it brings together dynamic and successful professionals between the ages of 21 and 40 who have a love for music and an interest in exploring arts and culture.
