As part of their 2018-2019 Pops series, the Phil is partnering with the influential Second City improv group - long a proving ground for a who's who of comedy legends in the U.S and Canada - for an evening of sketch comedy, new music and symphonic favorites. Compèring the evening is improv legend Colin Mochrie of Whose Line Is It, Anyway? fame.
