2024/2025 Season

Join us on a curated tour of great music from masterworks that have captivated audiences for centuries to powerful pieces of our time.

This season includes Dvorak Symphony No. 7, Beethoven Symphony No. 3 Eroica, Schumann Symphony No. 1, works by Brahms, Shostakovich, Estacio, Prokofiev, Strauss and more.

We are delighted to bring stellar soloists to our local stage: Michael Kim playing Mozart's dramatic Piano Concerto No. 20 in D minor; Erika Raum performs the romantic Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto; our own Gavin Warren playing Reitz's Clarinet Concerto; and soaring soprano Jennifer Taverner closes the season on a high note with excerpts from Strauss, Estacio and Novello.

At our Sunday matinee Discovery concert, symphony meets spoken word as we explore two very different musical genres. You won’t want to miss the unique narration of Prokofiev’s iconic “Peter and the Wolf” by guest artist Craig Doyle of CDH Live!

To maximize access to great orchestral music our prices remain unchanged since 2015.

SUBSCRIBE for our best prices and put "Philharmonic Fridays" on your calendar as a regularly scheduled self-care event.

See you at the symphony!
