Dancers in Odeon by Ephrat Asherie


Philadelphia Auto Show Black Tie Tailgate

Beep! Beep! The Philadelphia Auto Show’s annual preview party cruises back into town for the 34th year. Scout out rare and luxury vehicles before the event opens to the public, along with all the essentials for a good time: food, cocktails and live music. Proceeds benefit the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. 7-11:30pm, tickets from $275, Pennsylvania Convention Center,



Odeon is pushing the limits in the world of choreography and music. Ephrat Asherie’s unique troupe draws elements from hip-hop, breakdancing and vogue set to live Afro-Brazilian music from composer Ernesto Nazareth. Times vary, tickets from $29, Annenberg Center, University City,


Aretha: Respect

The Queen of Soul may not be with us anymore, but her spirit lives on forever—especially through shows like Philly POPS’ Aretha: Respect. Audiences can’t help but feel the singer’s everlasting presence while listening to phenomenal renditions of classics like “Chain of Fools,” “Bridge Over Troubled Water” and, of course, “Respect” by Broadway star Capathia Jenkins and Grammy nominee Ryan Shaw. Times vary, tickets from $35, Kimmel Center, Avenue of the Arts,



If you’ve seen the 1992 film Candyman or 1998 film The Truman Show, you’ve heard the music of Philip Glass in the score. In celebration of his many successful years as a composer, several musicians will be performing his works through March. To kick it off, acclaimed choir The Crossing will perform "Knee Plays." Times vary, tickets from $29, Annenberg Center, University City,
