The current incarnation of the Boise Philharmonic was established in 1960 and today, is Idaho’s oldest and largest performing organization, tracing its roots to the mid-1880’s with the formation of the Boise City Orchestra. The Philharmonic’s 70 professional musicians perform 14 Masterworks programs each season, reaching over 50,000 people annually.
With a wonderful education and outreach program, the symphony hosts a number of family concerts, classes for children and also works in conjunction with the Boise Philharmonic Youth Orchestra to help mentor the next generation of classical musicians. Season subscriptions are available for each of the concert series and single ticket prices are well within reach of the music lover on a budget.
