Philharmonia String Orchestra

The Philharmonia String Orchestra is a mid-level string orchestra.

This ensemble provides a transition from the Prelude Orchestra to the more difficult repertoire that is performed by the Concert Orchestra. The group performs selected repertoire for string orchestra, and joins with the Philharmonia Orchestral Winds ensemble at selected concerts during the season to give its members experience in playing literature for full orchestra.
