THANK YOU to everyone who has generously donated to New Phil during this uncertain and stressful year! This year, while our expenses are somewhat reduced, our revenue has been vastly reduced as we’ve had no ticket sales revenue since last March. We welcome donations of all sizes to our Annual Fund, and we’re incredibly grateful to all the members of our community who have donated throughout the year.

Meet our Artistic Partners!

A new artistic leadership team is happening at New Phil!  In these unusual and uncertain times when no live indoor music is possible, New Phil has gotten creative!

Our Principal Conductor, Jorge Soto, has been joined by three wonderful instrumentalists as New Phil’s first Artistic Partners who are leading our wind, brass, and percussion sections in small ensembles, providing our players the opportunity to make music in COVID times.

New Phil going forward!

New Philharmonia is committed to a future of “Music for All,” providing great concerts for the region – classical, family and pops!  As with all performing arts organizations, the timing of our precise trajectory is uncertain.  However, we remain hopeful that we will be able to present live music in some manner during our 2020-21 season. We’ll be sure to let you know what our upcoming season looks like, or come back to our website often to catch up on the latest.  In the meantime, please stay safe and well!

Here are some resources that will help you maintain a virtual connection with our community and share in our love of music and the arts.

Music for All – as noted in the Boston Globe in 1998 – the orchestra’s mission is to bring great music to the suburbs,
and to make it not only for the people but of the people and by the people.
The orchestra advances its mission by presenting programs of diverse repertoire of classical and light classical music for the enjoyment of audiences of all ages and experiences from a variety of urban and suburban communities. At the same time the orchestra strives to provide its non-professional players the opportunity to achieve a high level of ensemble performance not otherwise available.
