About Portsmouth Philharmonia
The Portsmouth Philharmonia was set up in March 2009 by a small group of amateur musicians wanting to rehearse together on a regular basis.
The orchestra's main aim is to provide opportunities for local amateur musicians to play in an orchestra. The orchestra performs at least two of their own concerts per year in order to raise money for charity.
In addition to this the orchestra also takes the opportunity to perform in other concerts and events throughout the year, sometimes in collaboration with local ensembles.
