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.)

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.

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!
