The Pittsburgh Philharmonic is Southwestern Pennsylvania’s premier volunteer orchestra!
We have a dual mission:
- To serve the community by providing educational entertainment through a variety of classical music performances aimed at all music lovers in innovative, affordable, and accessible concerts in the Greater Pittsburgh area
- To provide an opportunity for dedicated and talented amateur musicians to collaborate and share great music.
The Philharmonic welcomes all music lovers to its audience, but focuses on a variety of geographic locations and community venues that allow for low ticket prices to encourage all to encounter and enjoy classical music. The Philharmonic is steadfast in its dedication to artistic development, educational programs, encouraging diversity, and promoting musical performances in a way that helps to inspire and enrich the lives of our members and audience.
Composed of approximately 70 musicians, our members hail from throughout the tri-state area, ranging in age from 15 to 80. Members of the orchestra include business professionals, retirees, students, teachers, and other professionals, some who have been performing with Philharmonic for over 20 years.
