The Philharmonia is a full symphony orchestra of advanced string, wind, brass and percussion students and draws its membership from qualified high school students from all over the Washington DC metropolitan region. The Philharmonia provides more experienced musicians the opportunity to further develop and refine their technique while performing more challenging, mostly standard literature drawn from all style periods.
Qualified students are encouraged to compete in our Concerto Competition, the winning Senior performing their solo with the orchestra at the final concert in the Spring. Rehearsals are conducted with professional expectations of attention and effort. Our students gain a high degree of satisfaction from playing outstanding music well.
