The Philharmonic Orchestra is the premier orchestra of the San Jose Youth Symphony. The members are outstanding players who demonstrate strong musicianship, have highly advanced technique, and are capable of the discipline necessary to perform in a pre-professional orchestral setting. The Philharmonic Orchestra performs three subscription concerts per year in December, March and June at the historic California Theater in downtown San Jose. The concerts showcase a wide range of challenging masterpieces from the standard symphonic repertoire, and select musicians have the opportunity to play in chamber music groups that perform at various venues throughout the year.
Enjoy this special program of the following pieces: Piston's The Incredible Flutist; Doppler's Concerto for Two Flutes and Orchestra; Sarasate's Navarra for Two Violins and Orchestra; Holst's The Planets with the Valley Christian High School Orchestra; and A. Marquez's Danzon No. 2.
