Funds raised by The Committees support the Philharmonic Society of Orange County. The arts are essential for a civilized society, a creative and productive workforce, and the growth and vitality of the human spirit. To this end, the Philharmonic Society of Orange County, a not-for-profit corporation, will foster and promote knowledge, enjoyment and appreciation of music and related arts through the presentation of performance of national and international stature, and will develop and implement a wide variety of educational outreach programs for the community.
With an energetic and dedicated membership of volunteers, The Committees of the Philharmonic Society support an extensive array of music education programs that are offered at no charge to all public and private schools in Orange County. More than two million children, from kindergarten through high school, have participated in the Youth Music Education Programs since their inception in 1958.
