Yale Philharmonia

The Yale Philharmonia is one of America’s foremost music school ensembles. The largest performing group at the Yale School of Music, the Yale Philharmonia offers superb training in orchestral playing and repertoire. Performances include an annual series of concerts in Woolsey Hall, as well as Yale Opera productions in the Shubert Theatre.

The Yale Philharmonia 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 Yale Philharmonia undertook its first tour of Asia, with acclaimed performances in the Seoul Arts Center, the Forbidden City Concert Hall and National Center for the Performing Arts (Beijing), and the Shanghai Grand Theatre.

Each year, the Yale 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, Marin Alsop, and James Conlon. The orchestra plays not only the symphonic repertoire but concertos, new music, and choral works.

2018–2019 SEASON

Tickets & Subscriptions

The challenges of lingering financial constraints and diminished resources, coupled with our commitment to sustain the excellence of Philharmonia, have made it necessary to begin charging a nominal price for tickets, as the Yale Symphony Orchestra has been doing for years. Even a nominal ticket price will go a long way toward sustaining our orchestra program in the coming years.
