Mann Center for the Performing Arts History

Summer means fun in the sun, being outdoors and, of course, summer concerts. Few venues do outdoor summer concerts quite like the Mann Center for the Performing Arts, located in the beautiful Fairmount Park in Philadelphia. There has been music in Fairmount Park since 1922, when the Lemon Hill Concert Pavilion first opened, bringing live performances from the Philadelphia Orchestra to the citizens of the area. The idea was so popular that a new 10,000 seat pavilion was built in 1930 known as the Robin Hood Dell, one of the most important and beloved warm weather concert venues in the country in the 20th Century. When millionaire businessman and music lover Frederic R. Mann took over control over the Robin Hood Dell, he brought the financial resources and deep care that the venue needed to survive through war and depression. He used his connections in the music and business arenas to bring some of the biggest names in music to the pavilion. It soon became apparent that the aging Robin Hood Dell would need to be rebuilt and Mann helped the city with public and private funding for a 14,000 seat venue that would continue his dream of bringing world class music of all styles to the people of Philadelphia. Opening in 1976, the bicentennial year, the Robin Hood Dell West would later become the Mann Center for the Performing Arts in 1997.
