The Phoenix Symphony

Member Since July 2022

The Phoenix Symphony has been proudly serving the citizens of the Phoenix metropolitan area and Arizona since 1947. The Phoenix Symphony presents an annual season from September through the beginning of June, featuring full-length classical and pops concerts at Symphony Hall in downtown Phoenix, as well as concerts in Scottsdale, Mesa, Prescott and throughout central Arizona. The Symphony performs for more than 65,000 students and children, helping to introduce music to new generations through a variety of education and youth-engagement programs.

As Arizona’s only full-time, professional orchestra, The Phoenix Symphony operates on an annual budget of more than $8.5 million, of which ticket revenues cover approximately 50%. Remaining funds are provided through the generosity and vision of thousands of individuals, corporations, and foundations. The Symphony also receives important support through public funding provided from the area’s citizens via the Arizona Commission on the Arts, National Endowment for the Arts, Phoenix Office of Arts & Culture, and other governmental departments.

The Phoenix Symphony offers a wide variety of programming each year — including regular series of Classics, Symphony Pops, Chamber Orchestra, and Family offerings, as well as special community presentations celebrating various holidays and area events.

The Phoenix Symphony joined the PCA for the opportunity to be a part of and connect with the downtown Phoenix community, to stay apprised of the exciting happenings and developments across town, and to help further cultivate our vibrant and culturally rich city.
