The Musicians of the Binghamton Philharmonic proudly serve our community and our institution through a continued commitment of artistic excellence to each performance. We dedicate ourselves to bringing the gift of live classical music to our community, both within the concert hall and without. Together with current Music Director José-Luis Novo, we thrill to work together with soloists of great artistry to bring the great masterworks and innovative new works to the stage. We also find great fulfillment in working with young people in educational outreach programs throughout the community.
As stewards of a near 60-year legacy, we feel a strong sense of commitment to continuing the artistic excellence and professionalism of this fine orchestra. Our 71 musicians have won positions via competitive blind auditions and come from as far away as Pittsburgh, New York City and Cincinnati, or live as close as the Binghamton metropolitan area. We recognize the interest and generosity of so many people in our community who support the orchestra, attend our concerts and donate generously. You, our friends and patrons, are our reason for being. We thank you for your commitment and look forward to continuing to bring you great music for many, many years to come.
