A recipient of three Academy Awards, eight Grammys, and a Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee, Burt Bacharach has been one of the most-honored and successful composers for six decades. His music is as diverse as his audiences, spanning generations and continents, as he is celebrated both as a pop culture icon and one of the world's greatest contemporary composers.

Bacharach's credits read like the world's favorite radio stations' playlist: Alfie, Arthur's Theme,Close To You, Raindrops Keep Fallin' on my Head, Do You Know The Way To San Jose, I Say A Little Prayer, I'll Never Fall In Love Again, What's New Pussycat?, This Guy's In Love With You,Walk On By, What The World Needs Now Is Love, and Wishin' And Hopin' are among his many hits.

The Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia Board of Directors requests the pleasure of your attendance at this black tie event in celebration of one of music's greatest contributors.
