Phoenix Symphony
Phoenix Symphony Founded in 1947, the Phoenix Symphony proudly serves the citizens of the greater Phoenix metropolitan area, central Arizona, and the southwestern United States. What began as an occasional group of musicians performing a handful of concerts each year, today serves more than 300,000 people annually, with 275 concerts and presentations throughout the Valley of the Sun and beyond. The 76-member Phoenix Symphony presents an annual season from September through the beginning of June, featuring full-length classical and pops concerts at Symphony Hall in downtown Phoenix, as well as concerts in Scottsdale, Mesa, Prescott and throughout central Arizona. The Symphony performs for more than 80,000 students and children, helping to introduce music to new generations and evoking a passion for orchestral music throughout the entire community.
