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.

A Pops Concert to remember!

Mayor Fuller and violin soloist Emma Lee at Monday’s July 4 concert.

Thank you to all who joined us for our Independence Day Pops Concert! As our first performance as a full orchestra in over a year, the program featured a variety of celebratory American musical treats and Aaron Copland’s iconic “Lincoln Portrait,” with Mayor Ruthanne Fuller narrating excerpts of Abraham Lincoln’s great documents. The beautiful weather and enthusiastic audience made for a triumphant end to a patriotic community celebration of the Fourth of July

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 remains uncertain.  However, we are continuing to look for ways to present outdoor live music, and are hopeful that we will be able to hold indoor concerts during our 2021-22 season.

We’ll be sure to let you know what our upcoming season looks like. Come back to our website often to catch up on the latest.  In the meantime, please stay safe and well!


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.
