Sittin’ In introduces audiences to new cutting-edge artists. It defies genre, often drawing from everything from straight-ahead jazz to freestyle hip hop and all points in between. There’s an unpredictability to the night, which we enthusiastically embrace! Sometimes you’ll experience a finely tuned set and sometimes you can catch a totally improvised show by seven people who have never played together. The awesome creativity, excitement, and quality always shine through in The Kimmel Center’s informal club-like setting, featuring early warm-up sets by some of the hottest DJs around. And, it’s free!
Thee Phantom and The Illharmonic Orchestra combine the raw energy and passion of Hip-Hop, with the beautiful sounds of live orchestration. Phantom first mixed Beethoven and The Beastie Boys in his living room in 1987 and the group has since graced the hallowed stages of; Carnegie Hall, and The Kennedy Center. In 2002, the ensemble became the first Hip-Hop group to perform at the Kimmel Center, where they were accompanied by members of the Philadelphia Orchestra and Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia.
