I remember suggesting just such a concept in 1992 to the management at Dun & Bradstreet when that company was in the Martin Towers, Bethlehem. It only took more than 15 years for some other company to pull it off.
If you work in or near Downtown Allentown, attending this series is a great way to support local talent.
