The Philadelphia Orchestra extends its reach into the community on an ongoing basis with the goal of being an active, energetic, and musical participant in the lives of area residents, organizations, and community partners.
The Orchestra’s community programming engages multiple constituencies throughout the Greater Philadelphia area. Orchestra musicians also serve a key role in growing young musicians’ talent and love of classical music in their own dedicated community roles as teachers, coaches, and mentors.
