  • In this 75-minute online celebration, the Philharmonic Society of Orange County will be highlighting the great programs and concert series that have cemented our place within our community for more than 60 years through our mission to further the appreciation of classical music.

    As Orange County’s first music organization, the Philharmonic Society presents the world's greatest symphony orchestras, chamber ensembles, soloists and international artists, and offers its Youth Music Education Programs, one of the most extensive music education programs of its kind in the country, free of charge to schools, students, and parents, reaching more than 100,000 students from elementary through high school each year.

    Music is an essential part of any great community. In this virtual evening, we will be joined by some of classical music’s biggest names, who will share their experiences with the Philharmonic Society, and those listening live will have the chance to hear and see them perform some of their favorite musical selections.

    Funds from the gala will ensure the Philharmonic Society of Orange County will be able to continue connecting our community to great music while also providing youth music programs for our school-aged children across the county.
