Our Planet Live in Concert 
Featuring Penn State Philharmonic Orchestra

7:30 pm Tuesday, April 11, 2023

The landmark Emmy Award-winning Netflix series that took the world by storm is now a live concert event. Our Planet Live in Concert combines breathtaking HD cinematography with all-new orchestrations by Oscar Award-winning composer Steven Price performed live by Penn State Philharmonic Orchestra. Featuring narration by legendary broadcaster David Attenborough, this mesmerizing concert and journey of discovery is a celebration of the planet we call home. It welcomes audiences to be fully immersed in the wonders of Earth’s wildlife and their habitats.

“I can’t wait for the audience to experience the music of Our Planet Live,” Price says. “Using a combination of the most memorable sequences from the Netflix series, exclusively designed for this show, the incredible musicians plan to take you on a journey that celebrates the wonders of our planet — the one home we all share — whilst showing the urgent need to treasure and protect it.”

The ninety-member Penn State Philharmonic presents about half a dozen concerts each academic year. Enrollment, open to all University Park students, is by audition at the beginning of each semester. The orchestra has performed throughout the northeastern United States, including appearances at New York City’s Carnegie Hall, Pittsburgh’s Heinz Hall, and Philadelphia’s Kimmel Center.

A donation will be made to the World Wildlife Fund for each concert on the tour.
