"I am excited to say we have sold out almost every concert this season at the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts and because of this, we have decided to move our concerts to two larger venues with more seating and easy parking," explains Joy Partridge, president and co-founder of the Scottsdale Philharmonic.
The Scottsdale Philharmonic will have an expanded concert schedule for fall 2023 and 2024. The concerts will be Sundays from 4 to 6 p.m. Check the website for concert venue location.
- The season opening concert on Oct. 8 will feature piano soloist Vitaly Serebriakov in Brahms' "Piano Concerto No. 1, Movement 1"; Marquez's "Danzon Number 2"; and Mendelssohn's "The Hebrides Fingal's Cave."
- The program for the Nov. 12 concert will be: Brahms' "Symphony No.1", Mozart's "Marriage of Figaro Overture", Tchaikovsky's "Marche Slave Op.31", and Herbert's "Ah Sweet Mystery of Life" with Soloist Melissa Solomon.
- Dec. 17 is the Philharmonic's popular annual holiday concert with holiday favorites and classical music.
- Concert dates for the first half of 2024 are Feb. 11, March 17, May 5 and June 30.
Concert tickets are available for a $20 donation ($35 for VIP premium seating) at www.scottsdalephilharmonic.com. Season tickets also are available.
"We are planning to re-start our youth orchestra program this year to continue our emphasis on providing more opportunities for students to play," explains Partridge. "All students may attend our concerts for free but still need to request a ticket online.
"The vision of the Scottsdale Philharmonic becoming a valued symphony in the Phoenix metro area is just beginning," Partridge explains. "We invite anyone who is passionate about classical music to be part of our Classical Music Alliance of Arizona." For more information, contact Joy@scottsdalephilharmonic.com.
The Scottsdale Philharmonic is a non-profit organization that receives a vast majority of its support from individual donors. "We have found that grants are less available to groups like ours after the Covid pandemic so donations are even more important now," explains Partridge.
