Portsmouth Philharmonic Orchestra
About Portsmouth Philharmonic Orchestra
The Portsmouth Philharmonic Orchestra was established in March 2009, initially named the Portsmouth Philharmonia by a small group of amateur musicians wanting to rehearse together on a regular basis.
They have since grown in numbers and established a strong reputation within the local community. In 2017 the organisation name was changed to the Portsmouth Philharmonic Orchestra.
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.
More than £15,000 has been raised to date for a variety of local good causes including: The Roberts Centre, The Samaritans, The RNLI, The Hayling Island Community Centre, The Ninewells Cancer Campaign, Brain Tumour Research, Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund, Meningitis Now and the Solent Diabetic Association.
The orchestra provides local players an opportunity to develop and pursue their passion in the wider community in a fair and engaging environment.
