About Us

The Phoenix Symphony is Arizona's largest performing arts organization, with an annual budget over $11 million. Founded as a part-time community orchestra in 1947, The Phoenix Symphony has grown to become a major fulltime ensemble proudly serving one of the fastest-growing metropolitan regions of the United States. Of the area's more than 3 million citizens, the Symphony directly serves more than 300,000 people annually, with 275 concerts and presentations throughout the greater Phoenix area and beyond.

The 75-member Phoenix Symphony presents an annual season from September through the beginning of June, featuring full-length classical and pops concerts at Symphony Hall in downtown Phoenix, in Scottsdale, in Prescott and throughout central Arizona. The Symphony also performs for more than 50,000 students and children (representing over 260 different schools), helping to introduce music to new generations through a variety of education and youth-engagement programs.

A year-round staff of 30 provides administration, operations, marketing, public relations, and development support.
