XPN Weekend Arts Crawl…Music by the river, dance at Suzanne Roberts, classic cars in the street!



Of course, the biggest event for XPN is our annual  XPoNential Music Festival!  It’s the highlight of a year filled with musical discovery and a chance to celebrate down by the river.  We hope you can join us and if not, please tune in and enjoy the music on our airwaves or on our live stream.

Brian Sanders, Kun Yang Lin, Rennie Harris…just some of the names behind the spectacular dance scene that is Philadelphia.  Their companies and many others perform at the second annual Come Together Dance Festival at the Suzanne Roberts Theater. It’s presented by another stellar Philadelphia group, Koresh Dance Company, who are also performing. Billed as “Come see Philly on its feet!”  it’s a chance to see all styles of dance and physical theater and at the post-show mingles with the dancers, to have your questions answered about the making and meaning of dance.
