The Legacy of the Mann in Fairmount Park

The Mann has been the summer home of The Philadelphia Orchestra since the 1930s and has presented critically acclaimed performers in every decade since. Located in the heart of Philadelphia’s Fairmount Park, the Mann hosts more than 170,000 visitors annually.

Recently, the Mann's campus has undergone major capital improvements including the introduction of the Skyline Stage with unparalleled views of the Philadelphia skyline. Located on a newly annexed 3.5 acres of lawn, this stage enables the Mann to offer shows on multiple stages; attract artists who prefer open-air venues; expand the number of concerts we present; and appeal to younger audiences. Other facility improvements included rennovations to the Terrace and Lawn seating areas and top of the hill Promenade, construction of a new top of the hill entrance and drop off, and upgrades to the visual and lighting systems.  

With your support the Mann will continue to enhance the overall patron experience with world-class programming and state-of-the-art venue upgrades.
