FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA) - Fort Wayne Philharmonic superfans, you might want to be standing up when you see this.

Officials with the Fort Wayne Philharmonic say they will be performing at the Fort Wayne Ballet’s performances of Swan Lake March 24-26 at the Arts United Center.

Though this would not be a part of their official 2022-2023 season, this marks the comeback of the philharmonic players since their months-long strike that started in early December 2022.
