Established in 1983 as the New Orchestra of Westchester, the Philharmonic’s artistic stature is evidenced in part by past collaborations with such acclaimed artists as violinists Isaac Stern, Gil Shaham, Joshua Bell, and Midori, pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet, and mezzo-soprano Frederica von Stade. The orchestra’s repertoire includes works by such Romantic era legends as Liszt, Brahms, Rossini, and Mussorgsky, but is not limited to that period. In addition to the concerts, select rehearsals are free and open to the public. The Philharmonic also serves the greater community of Westchester County through such educational outreach programs as Philharmonic Alive!, which is designed to teach students from preschool to grade 5 about the instrument families.
