Boston Philharmonic Funk Foundation

For something a little different!

The Philharmonic Funk Foundation is a soul, disco and funk machine that consists of 44 people. With a rhythm section, a full string orchestra and all the horns and winds you can think of, it has everything needed to perform even the most heavily orchestrated disco hits and soul ballads live for you. The original Dutch orchestra has performed on all the big stages and festivals in the Netherlands, and now, the Boston branch is excited to have you here for their first performance.

(No relation to the Boston Philharmonic Orchestra, FYI.)

TICKETS: $10, for purchase at http://www.artsatthearmory.org/Events/EventsCalendar/tabid/80/vw/3/ItemID/999/d/20130526/Default.aspx

MUSICIANS: they're still looking for volunteers to join in--message me if you'd like more info. The violin parts at least are pretty easy and also completely faithful to the orchestrations of the original songs.

ETA: RSVP on Facebook! https://www.facebook.com/events/156696561175698/

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This Event was suggested by fellow SILLY DATE-er Smitha (who is in the orchestra) and is currently being posted as FYI ONLY. Please RSVP here if you plan to go and want to meet up with others. Let me know if you are willing to step up as Event Host for this so we can make it an official event!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
