The orchestra offers advanced student musicians an opportunity to perform a rich repertoire of classical and contemporary works in an intimate orchestral setting. It is dedicated to providing high-quality live performances on the Stanford campus and throughout the Bay Area. The orchestra also provides opportunities for its musicians to collaborate with renowned artists visiting and performing at Stanford.
The Stanford Philharmonia rehearses on Tuesday evenings and presents three concerts each year. The Stanford Philharmonia is open to all undergraduate upperclassmen, graduate students, post-doctoral students, and University staff, with the pre-requisite that new members have one year of experience in the Stanford Symphony Orchestra or special consent from the music director. It is also open to qualified non-Stanford community members.
