The health and safety of our patrons, volunteers, performers, staff, and community is our top priority. We continue to closely monitor county and state guidelines to ensure the most up-to-date health and safety protocols are in place. With the recent changes from the CDC and California Department of Public Health, we urge you to read our Health & Safety Protocols page before your next visit to learn more about our and our venues' updated and latest protocols, which may be altered as new guidance is issued.
Established in 1956, the Philharmonic Society’s nationally recognized youth music education programs have enabled millions of children to encounter classical music—many for the first time. Under current school budgets, funding for arts education has been heavily sidelined or cut altogether. The Philharmonic Society’s youth music education programs, offered at no charge to schools, students or parents, have been one of the primary supplements to make up for the lack of funding for music education in our county’s schools and reach more than 100,000 students, from kindergarten through high school, each year.
The dedicated members of the Society’s principal fundraising and volunteer force, the Committees of the Philharmonic Society, work relentlessly to ensure that an extraordinary array of music education programs continues to be made available to students.
COVID-19 Update: Even in this precarious time, the Philharmonic Society of Orange County remains committed to enriching lives through music by creating virtual offerings of our wide spectrum of Youth Music Education programs.
