Jill Scott Tapped for 157th Academy of Music Anniversary Concert and Ball


The Chamber GroupThe Philadelphia Orchestra announced that Jill Scott is gearing up to perform during the 157th Academy of Music Anniversary Concert and Ball, which is an event that celebrates the Academy of Music, a National Historic Landmark in Philadelphia, PA.

The upcoming showcase will surely be nostalgic for Jill, who hails from Philly. “I’m planning to bring my 4-year-old son Jett to the concert,” she tells “I can’t wait for him to see that beautiful concert hall and hear the Philadelphia Orchestra, just as my mom did lots with me when I was young.”  Jill adds, “The most amazing was a children’s concert where they played ‘Peter and the Wolf.’ When we’d play the record, afterward, I called it ‘Peter Wolf.'”

Scott also will bring along Robert Glasper and it’s likely they will perform their recent collaboration, “Calls,” from his recent Black Radio II album.

Concertgoers will enjoy an evening of music, dinner, and dancing on Saturday, January 25, 2014, beginning at 5:30 p.m.

Tickets are priced at $200 and can be purchased at the orchestra’s website.
