The Arlington Philharmonic, in its 17th season, is a vibrant community based professional symphony orchestra that plays the best of classical music in Arlington. From well-loved classics to brand new compositions, the symphony performs a variety of repertoire. Chamber music, choral works, symphonic music and concertos with dazzling local soloists engage our enthusiastic audiences.
The mission of the Arlington Philharmonic is to make classical music accessible to every Arlington resident, to promote the value of classical music in our civic life, and to build strong, creative partnerships with schools, local government, businesses and other organizations.
The Philharmonic is unique among regional professional orchestras because almost all of our performances are free. This means that quality classical music is available to everyone in our community.
We also sponsor a range of education and outreach initiatives, including programs for students in the Arlington Public Schools and for adults over 55. We also sponsor the Crescendo Chamber Music Program for middle and high school strings students.
In addition to live concerts, we make our performances available digitally in order to expand access. We have had robust audiences for our online events which have the added benefit of question and answer sessions with composers and our conductor and artistic director.
Join us for one of our events this year and enjoy beautiful music in your Arlington neighborhood.
