The Philharmonic Orchestra
The Rhode Island Philharmonic Orchestra is entering its 69th Season; the 2013-2014 Season is Music Director Larry Rachleff’s 18th with the Orchestra.
This season the Orchestra performs an eight-concert Classical Series with a roster of world-renowned guest artists, that includes pianists Cecile Lilad, Jean-Philippe Collard, Robert Levin & Alon Goldstein, violinists Jennifer Frautschi & Philippe Quint, cellist Colin Carr, guest conductor Michael Christie. All Classical Series concerts take place at the Vets, located at 1 Avenue of the Arts, Providence, RI.
In addition to the Saturday night Classical concerts, we have the Amica Rush Hour Series that takes place on four early Friday evenings throughout the season. The Amica Rush Hour Series presents short, informal, accessible classical concerts with repertoire from the subsequent Saturday's Classical concert. The Philharmonic also presents four Open Rehearsals during the season that offer audience members insight into the collaboration between the conductor, guest artists and orchestra musicians as they prepare for the upcoming classical concert.
Subscriptions are available for the Classical & Amica Rush Hour Series by calling 401.248.7000. Take a look at the 2013/2014 Season at a Glance to see the complete schedule for next season.
