                                                      enchanting music, sweeping views and ocean breezes with pieces that
                                                      celebrated the beauty of music and nature, including Vivaldi’s The Four

                                                      performances have been frequently cited as among the Best of Classical
                                                      Music Performances by The Boston Globe, joined the Phil for this special
                                                      evening. This first-time collaboration with the Trustees of Reservations
                                                      introduced many new people to the Phil.

                                                      MOZART VS. SALIERI
                                                      In October, the Phil sparkled and soared to new musical heights on a
                                                      program featuring lifelong compositional rivals, Salieri and Mozart – with
                                                      a special guest trumpeter, Brandon Ridenour joining the orchestra for the
                                                      Hummel Trumpet Concerto. Audiences buzzed with excitement and energy
                                                      after taking in the orchestra’s bravado and the soloist’s flair, raising the
                                                      standard yet again for classical music on the South Shore.

                                                      MUSIC TO HEAL THE SOUL
                                                      The Sons of Serendip added Plymouth to their 2020 tour schedule on January
                                                      25, helping the Phil create the orchestra’s biggest fundraiser of the season.
                                                      100% of ticket sales directly benefited the orchestra. This unique and
                                                      dynamic quartet were finalists in America’s Got Talent. The audience was
                                                      treated to an uplifting concert and a meet-and-greet after party. The concert
                                                      was a winter highlight for our audience, and the Phil was fortunate to have
                                                      the annual fundraiser scheduled earlier in the year than usual.
