Philly’s Summer Shed To Get Major Upgrades

“Philadelphia’s Mann Center for the Performing Arts broke ground Wednesday on a $14.2 million upgrade. … The Mann Center, which is in Philadelphia’s Fairmount Park, was opened in 1976 as the summer home of the Philadelphia Orchestra. … In July 2004, [the center’s CEO] outlined a $30 million plan to modernize the center. Wednesday’s ground breaking signals the first phase of that work. Among the improvements will be an education center to provide dedicated facilities for the 25,000 school children the center receives each year.”
