The Philharmonic Concert Series is entering its second season in 2013. In the first year, over 4,500 classical music aficionados attended five concerts playing to nearly full houses, each one concluding with enthusiastic standing ovations. These free concerts will take place once per month in October, December, February, April, and June at the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts.
The Scottsdale Philharmonic is a non-profit organization developing awareness, appreciation and preservation of classical music in the community, with an emphasis on building a supportive audience today and future generations. The orchestra is made up of approximately 80 musicians who donate their time to perform concerts to the public free of charge. Led by Scottsdale Philharmonic Conductor and Music Director Dr. Martin Province, dedicated musicians spent approximately 900 hours in group rehearsals and an unrecorded amount of practice time to prepare for each performance.
