Canadian conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin, Music Director of the Philadelphia Orchestra has addressed the gun violence in the city during a concert at Verizon Hall. He said: « Just since we’ve been playing this fabulous set of concerts to end the season with you all, just this week, just in our city, 30 people have been shot by gun violence, five people have been killed by guns just in our city. We’re way past the time for thoughts, prayers, and all of that.”
