Please Join Us for Our 38th Season!
The Pasadena Philharmonic Society presented the first performance of the Pasadena Philharmonic Orchestra in the fall of 1982. Enthusiasm for a symphony in the area was demonstrated by the number of high caliber musicians who came to play, the standing ovations received, and the critical funding provided by the City of Pasadena.
The Board of Directors is committed to improving the orchestra and expanding its role in improving the cultural life of our communities and nurturing young musicians.
In 2014 Mr. James Park became the Music Director and Conductor of the Philharmonic, and we have seen and heard an amazing transformation of the ensemble which has grown in size and musical maturity. Under Mr. Park’s leadership the Philharmonic has begun an expansive program of involving other community musical and artistic groups as part of the season’s programming. This year the orchestra will be joined by the following:
- The San Sam Rayburn High School Orchestra will join us at a free outdoor concert at Strawberry Park on October 5; and
- the Bonnette Junior High School Orchestra will join us at our free Spring Youth concert on March 1.
Please join us for all the four great concerts planned for this year. Tickets will be available at the door!
