Warm Greetings!

Nancy Sanderson,
Executive Director

Last season we celebrated several important milestones: our long-awaited return to the concert halls after the pandemic, our 50th anniversary, and a successful Gala honoring Geisinger, John Magagna, and PNC. Of course, none of this would have been possible without you—our loyal patrons. Your belief in what we do is the reason why the Northeastern Pennsylvania Philharmonic continues to thrive.

As we begin our next 50 years, we offer you a season with some of the most well-known and beloved pieces in the orchestral repertoire. In this Season of Discovery, we will also offer some exciting works that are new to orchestral literature. We are confident you will discover new music, composers, and guest artists that will impress and delight! There are several things you can do to help our orchestra. First of all, please join us for the remaining POPS Performance, (featuring music of John Williams!) and Masterworks concert. Your presence in the audience means so much to the musicians and sends a clear message to the community that you believe in what we do—and you know the positive impact the orchestra has in our community.

After much reflection, Mélisse has realized how deep her connection is to our orchestra and the NEPA Community and so, we are pleased to announce… MÉLISSE BRUNET IS HERE TO STAY! “I love this orchestra and I am committed to leading the Philharmonic going forward. Northeastern Pennsylvania is so fortunate to have a professional symphony orchestra made up of world class musicians. It is wonderful to conduct this great orchestra and I look forward to spending the coming years with our audience members, concert sponsors, and NEPA students who are exposed to symphonic music of the highest caliber. We encourage our community to join us at the concert hall and experience the joy of live music!”- Mélisse Brunet

Please join us for the remaining performances and show Mélisse the feeling is mutual!

I know I can speak for our orchestra members in saying that we look forward to seeing you in the audience—your presence is what makes the experience of live symphonic music so satisfying! Don’t delay—purchase your tickets today!
