A Professional Orchestra
Arizona Philharmonic is a regional professional orchestra. It draws auditioned, professional musicians from Prescott, Phoenix, Flagstaff, and other areas within driving distance. Musicians are paid at professional-level rates.A Cooperative Orchestra
Our goal is to support and grow Prescott’s already vibrant music community.
A Strong Orchestra
- We avoid audience competition with our sister orchestras by programming our full orchestra concert in the shoulder-season: after schools begin yet before the existing orchestra seasons start.
- We support our active choral community by being the orchestra behind local performances of great choral works.
Diversity builds strength. Our financial model is unique in that costs and concerts are distributed among multiple organizations. Plus we reach different audiences by serving both orchestral and choral music aficionados.
