I’m excited to be part of this event (as a Philharmonia Northwest Orchestra member) because amazing singers are so fun to play with! Opera music just makes me want to sing through my flute.

Philharmonia Northwest was established as Thalia Chamber Symphony by founding music director Frances Walton in 1976. It began as the chamber symphony arm of Thalia Symphony, and as such was administered by Thalia Symphony for its first nine years, becoming an independent unit of Thalia Allied Artists in 1985. The name change to Philharmonia Northwest was effected in 1987. Julia Tai was chosen as music director in 2011 after a year-long search. She continues to bring new energy to their performances and organization. Under her direction, the Outreach Program, partnering with local school music groups and community organizations, has added a new element to our community involvement. Philharmonia Northwest also partners with the Kirkland Choral Society to produce outstanding annual concerts at Benaroya Hall.
