Arizona’s only full-time professional orchestra, The Phoenix Symphony has been serving the greater Phoenix area since 1947 and today, reaches over 300,000 people per year through its concerts and educational outreach programs (which reach over 80,000 students annually). Under the inventive baton of Music Director Michael Christie, the Symphony has carved out an impressive niche for itself in the landscape of classical music, with adventurous Masterworks programming, fun Pops series and a very impressive Piano Concerto festival each season. Subscriptions to concert series are available with excellent discounts and the Symphony also hosts a program growing in popularity with orchestras around the country, a “Young Professionals” program, which invites younger concert goers to mingle and enjoy discounted ticket prices.
