News from the Philharmonic

Join Us on October 30 to Open the Season.  We are thrilled to present a program of music by British masters, with a special appearance by Arlington's own Bowen McCauley Dance.

The program includes: Moorside Suite by Gustav Holst and Enigma Variations, Op. 36 by Sir Edward Elgar.  And, in a first-ever joint performance, the dancers will perform “Golconda” to Ralph Vaughan William’s “Fantasia on a Theme of Thomas Tallis.”  

This special event will take place at 4 PM in the Kenmore Auditorium at 200 S. Carlin Springs Rd., Arlington, VA 22204.

As usual, no tickets are required. A $20 donation per adult is suggested. Please save the date!

The Philharmonic is in the CFC!  The Arlington Philharmonic is participating in the Combined Federal Campaign of the National Capital Area and is now part of the 2016 Catalog of Caring.

Federal civilian, military, and postal employees and retirees can now help make classical music accessible through free performances and educational programs for all ages in Northern Virginia. 

Look for us at the Arlington, VA CFC Charity Fair on October 19, 2016!
