Later in the afternoon, the couple will travel a few miles to West Philadelphia to meet with college students and to see at least one of the city’s 2,700 murals. The Mural Arts Program is one of the largest public art initiatives in the country.[…] Also in West Philadelphia, the couple will stop at International House, a nonprofit organization housing nearly 400 students, scholars and interns from more than 65 countries. The prince will hear a student panel discussion of urban regeneration in their respective homelands.[…] On Saturday night, the couple will attend a white-tie event at the Academy of Music in downtown Philadelphia. The academy is celebrating its 150th anniversary with a concert, ball and parade down Broad Street, including the Mummers – sort of Philadelphia’s version of Mardi Gras krewes. Former NBC news anchor Tom Brokaw will serve as one of the concert hosts, academy officials said. The night will include a performance by the Philadelphia Orchestra; opera selections by soprano Deborah Voigt and tenor Ben Heppner; a medley of show tunes sung by actor John Lithgow; and pop songs by Rod Stewart.
