Memorable Mother’s Day Gifts

Posted by:  Kimmel Cultural Campus on May 09, 2023

Looking for a gift that will create long-lasting memories, while showing your mom or mother-figure just how much you love them? Well, look no further than the Kimmel Cultural Campus and The Philadelphia Orchestra! We know how hard it is to find the perfect gift, so we’ve helped narrow down some options for you. Whether the special mom in your life has a love of jazz, Broadway, classical, or even just a fancy dinner with you, we have something available for every mom out there. Here are our top 7 gift ideas for this Mother’s Day:

Does your mother love perfect harmonies and orchestral symphonies in an unforgettable one-night-only setting? Then, what better gift than a pair of tickets to the world-renowned Philadelphia Orchestra featuring five-time GRAMMY-winning vocalists Angélique Kidjo and Renée Fleming on Tuesday, May 16.  Led by Music and Artistic Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin, this performance by the Orchestra will be filled with breathtaking classics from the Broadway, classical, opera, and folk music worlds.

Or maybe they have a more laid-back taste and would enjoy a folk music legend like Rufus Wainwright! Gift her the chance to see the great New York-born male vocalist, songwriter, and composer on Friday, June 23 as he takes his brand-new album Folkocracy on tour. As The New Yorker put it “Nobody sings quite like Rufus Wainwright.”

Is she someone who always has a podcast on or is constantly watching TED Talks? A ticket to one of our upcoming speakers might be the perfect fit! Spend an evening with former U.S. Navy SEAL Jocko Willink on July 22 as he teaches leadership principles from his New York Times #1 bestseller, or enjoy a night of storytelling with The Moth Mainstage on October 21 as local storytellers share true, personal stories on a variety of topics to create an intimate, moving, engrossing, theatrical, and educational experience. 

Is your mother the biggest Broadway-lover EVER?? Look no further as two of Broadway’s biggest hits  – Beetlejuice and Moulin Rouge! The Musical – bring their first national tours to Philly!

Take a journey with Beetlejuice on May 30 – June 11 as the ghost-with-the-most brings an adaptation of Tim Burton’s classic film comes to life on stage with an irreverent book, an astonishing set, and a score that’s out of this Netherworld. Under its uproarious surface, it is a remarkably touching show about family, love, and making the most of every Day-O!

Give your mother a ticket to a world of romance, grandeur, and glory at Moulin Rouge! The Musical!  Based on Baz Luhrmann’s revolutionary 2001 film, this award-winning production is a mash-up extravaganza celebrating Truth, Beauty, Freedom, and Love. We guarantee she will leave the theater dancing and with a smile on their face!

And if that isn’t enough Broadway in her life, gift her SEVEN shows with a subscription to our 2023-23 Broadway season, featuring classics like Wicked, Mamma Mia!, and Hadestown, as well as new productions of Funny Girl, Disney’s Frozen, and Stephen Sondheim’s COMPANY!

If she loves classical music, give a gift that will last all yearlong! A subscription package to The Philadelphia Orchestra’s 2023-24 season lets you see six shows and save money in the long run. Packages start at $120 and offer a variety of options in day and performance choices.  And if this variety is just too much to choose from, let Mom decide! When you surprise her with a gift certificate, you give her the opportunity to select the show or subscription of her choice.
