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!
It is with mixed emotions that I announce this season will be Mélisse Brunet’s last season as our Music Director. While we anticipated that the national and international attention she has been receiving would eventually lead her to another orchestral position, we had hoped for a few more years under her brilliant musical direction. We are proud to have discovered Mélisse and hope to give her a warm and enthusiastic send-off. Mark your calendars for every single opportunity offered this season to experience her amazing conducting! In the meantime, we will keep you updated about our search for the next Music Director of the Northeastern Pennsylvania Philharmonic.
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!
