The Philharmonia Orchestra of Yale is one of America’s foremost music school ensembles. The largest performing group at the Yale School of Music, the Philharmonia offers superb training in orchestral playing and repertoire.
The orchestra has performed on numerous occasions in Carnegie Hall and Alice Tully Hall in New York City, and at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. In 2008 the Philharmonia undertook its first tour of Asia. Each year, the Philharmonia’s concert series in historic Woolsey Hall offers a broad range of repertoire under principal conductor Peter Oundjian and distinguished guest conductors.
Recent seasons have featured guest conductors including John Adams, Krzysztof Penderecki, William Christie, and James Conlon. The orchestra plays not only the symphonic repertoire but concertos, new music, and choral works.
