The Palo Alto Philharmonic celebrates its 29th season

We are a community orchestra that provides quality performances at a reasonable cost to the Silicon Valley. Founded in 1988 by a group of local musicians, we have grown to include members from many communities throughout the Bay Area. We present a broad spectrum of music and exciting soloists, while focusing on the classic repertoire beloved by our audiences.
