Sponsorships at The Mann Center offer visibility, promotion and access. The Center annually hosts the fabulous Philadelphia Orchestra and a wide variety of world-renowned pop, jazz, dance, rock and contemporary artists in a beautiful outdoor setting. This broad array of entertainment attracts audiences from all backgrounds, interests, and ages.
The 2010 season of The Mann, celebrating 75 years of live music in the park, includes an eclectic mix of some of the most talented performers in both classical and popular music. We encourage you to look closely at this year’s sponsorship opportunities.
With an annual attendance of 150,000, The Mann Center provides an opportunity for branding and marketing to these multiple audiences. The Mann’s beautiful park setting also provides a gracious, relaxed and casually elegant backdrop for dinner prior to fabulous evenings of entertainment, and thus a unique alternative to other summer entertainment options in the region.
Corporate opportunities for support include sponsorships of individual concerts and/or a series of concerts, special events, and product specific opportunities. In addition, companies may choose to provide important support to The Mann’s extensive education and community engagement initiatives.
