Being a musician in the Philharmonic is more than rehearsing and playing music; it is an entry into one of the longest-running and highest-caliber community orchestras in the Puget Sound Region. Our members are from all backgrounds — teachers, students, doctors, lawyers, engineers, and artistis — with one common vision: to share the joy of creating music with our community.
At present, our season runs from September until June, during which we perform four subscription concerts at Benaroya Hall on Saturday afternoons at 2:00 p.m. Rehearsals are every Wednesday evening from 7:15 until 9:45 pm and are usually held at Roosevelt High School.
In addition to performing masterpieces from the standard repertoire, we are devoted to playing important works (often by women composers) that have been passed over by other orchestras and conductors. We strongly believe that surfacing and highlighting these pieces enriches both our membership and the community we serve.
