Regional Opera Company of the Week: Opera Company of PhiladelphiaAnother way the company cultivates its audience is through the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation's "Random Acts of Culture" Initiative. The Knight Foundation has been committed to making 1,000 of these "pop-up" performances available by bringing artists out of the performance halls and into the streets as a reminder of how the classical arts enrich lives. OCP first performed a pop-up Brindisi chorus from La traviata in April 2010, which garnered over 3.5 million hits on YouTube. This was followed by the now-celebrated Hallelujah Chorus at Macy's in Center City Philadelphia, featuring the Wanamaker Organ and over 650 area choristers, which became a holiday YouTube sensation in 2010 and garnered national press coverage and nearly 8 million hits from over 100 countries. Stay tuned for the next "Random Acts of Culture" near you.

Current Season
The 2012-13 Season opened with La bohème last September and October but for anyone in the Philadephia area- you don't want to miss the upcoming production of Silent Night next month.
