The Philharmonic’s vision is to be the epicenter of music and culture in Southern Colorado, reflecting the greatness of our community and the best of human potential through musical excellence, creative discovery, and civic leadership.
Classical music has been alive and well in Colorado Springs since 1927. As the only full-scale professional orchestra in Southern Colorado, the Philharmonic employs skilled musicians to perform for audiences of many thousands of concertgoers each year.
The Philharmonic’s season is anchored by a seven-concert Masterworks series in the amazing, acoustically rich Pikes Peak Center for the Performing Arts. In almost every concert, the Philharmonic musicians are joined by renowned guest artists.
Pops concerts broaden the mix and seek to appeal to an even wider audience with concert programs designed for every taste, including works from Broadway to Tinsel Town and everything in between.
The Philharmonic’s musicians are the most sought-after performers in the region. Many maintain full schedules as music teachers, private instructors, and performers with other prestigious ensembles in Denver and beyond.
In addition to its regular concerts, the Philharmonic offers an array of successful education and family concerts, bringing the gift of music to thousands of young people and families throughout the Pikes Peak region.
