From the University City Review, written by Haywood Brewster:

In continuation of a relationship begun last year, The Philadelphia Orchestra and guest conductor Sir Simon Rattle opened Saturday evening's concert with a performance by Play On, Philly! (POP).  The St. Francis de Sales musicians - in grades 4 through 8 - played an arrangement of the first movement of Beethoven's Symphony No. 5 at the top of the concert, followed by the Philadelphia Orchestra's regularly scheduled concert.  The students received a rousing standing ovation from the audience.  To read more click here: http://goo.gl/kOOTt
