The Philadelphia Orchestra is an American symphony orchestra based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It was founded in 1900 by Fritz Scheel, who conducted the first concert at the Academy of Music. The orchestra is one of the "Big Five" American symphony orchestras, and is widely considered one of the finest orchestras in the world.

The orchestra has released several acclaimed albums, including their 1981 recording of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, which won a Grammy Award for Best Classical Album. They have also released albums of music by composers such as Tchaikovsky, Dvorak, and Stravinsky. The orchestra has also released several popular concerto recordings, featuring the works of composers such as Brahms, Mendelssohn, and Rachmaninoff.

The Philadelphia Orchestra has performed in a number of iconic venues, including Carnegie Hall, The White House, and the Lincoln Memorial. The orchestra also performed at the opening ceremony of the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City.

An interesting fact about The Philadelphia Orchestra is that it is the first orchestra to establish an online presence. In 2009, the orchestra launched its official website, offering streaming audio and video of its performances, as well as interviews with its musicians and conductors.
