The Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia is presenting a series of outdoor concerts in Villanova’s Stoneleigh: A Natural Garden. The garden is minutes away from the Villanova train station, making it a more accessible destination for city dwellers looking for an alternative to online concerts.

This Sunday, the Chamber Orchestra will play pieces by Telemann, Corelli, and also C.P.E. Bach’s third cello concerto. The soloist will be Branson Yeast, a young Curtis graduate who recently became the principal cellist of the Chamber Orchestra and Opera Philadelphia. The Telemann will be the Baroque composer’s good-natured Don Quixote suite. The Corelli will bring the concert to a summery end with a string orchestra arrangement of three Baroque dances.

Stoneleigh is a 42-acre public garden that showcases native plants and emphasizes the importance of biodiversity. The gates will open an hour before the concert so patrons can enjoy a pre-concert picnic.

The Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia will present Telemann, Bach, and Corelli on Sunday, June 27, at 6:30 pm at Stoneleigh Natural Garden, 1829 East County Line Road, Villanova, PA.
