The Pasadena Philharmonic Orchestra and Society are hosting our 1st Annual Epicurean Event ... a fundraiser event to help kick off our performance season.
We are working hard to make this a great community get-together! This will be a fun way to sample the cuisine from local restaurants and bakeries. Dining will be accompanied by a musical performance of the PPO. There is an online pre-event auction that transitions to a live auction during the event, a 50/50 raffle pot, and many raffle baskets! The event will take place on Saturday, August 19, 2023 at 5:00 p.m. It will be held at the East Harris County Activity Center at 7340 Spencer Highway, Pasadena, Texas 77505.

The orchestra presented its first performance 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, Texas.
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.
Please join us for all the great concerts planned for this year. Tickets are available here on this site ... and will also be available at the door!
The society promotes classical music in the southeastern area of the greater Houston metropolis known as the Bay Area, which includes the cities of Pasadena, Deer Park, South Houston, Galena Park, Morgan’s Point, Shore Acres, Taylor Lake Village, La Porte and the parts of the Clear Lake Area of south Houston.
The society is a non-profit organization, which supports an orchestra, composed of professional players, music teachers from the public school, college students and selected public school students. We strive to provide a unique cultural outreach to this population while promoting cultural education, musical study, and performance. The society is active in support of several community events.
The Pasadena Philharmonic Society is composed of a volunteer Board of Trustees. It supports a Musical Director, part-time support staff, and provides stipends to selected orchestra chairs. The majority of the orchestra members are volunteers.
