Awesome Sunday Concerts

Concerts

Did you know that we have our very own orchestra in the SCV? The Santa Clarita Philharmonic is a community orchestra made up amateur, retired, professional, semi-professional and student musicians from around the SCV.

Now the orchestra is back to perform their first FREE concert of the 2014-2015 season this Sunday, November 16 at 3PM at the Hart High School Auditorium. The concert will feature the great compositions of Mozart, Vivaldi, Vaughan Williams and Schubert.

Later this season, the musicians will perform a series of other concerts, including a Pop’s Concert showcasing the works of American composers, and a special concert to feature the music of the upcoming Student Concerto Competition!

These FREE Sunday concerts are an awesome opportunity to expose your family to an abundance of classical musical culture performed by your friends and neighbors. For more information on the group, click here.
