Support our National Philharmonic Musicians!

About the Project

Since 2003, the National Philharmonic has been a part of the rich cultural landscape of Montgomery County and beyond. Through the years, we have created a space where Music Works Wonders by providing amazing performances, arts and education programs, and community initiatives that extend music beyond the stage. Our musicians are essential to making this happen. Right now, as a Nation, we are all facing the devastating effects of the Covid -19 pandemic. The Arts are particularly vulnerable as people shift their giving priorities and our musicians are feeling the pain. Mandates from Governor Larry Hogan for state-wide closures of businesses deemed non-essential have led to the cancellation of the final 3 concerts in National Philharmonic’s 2019-20 season. Those concerts represent lost wages of $134,000 for 89 musicians.

National Philharmonic’s musicians are the lifeblood of our organization. Thanks to them, we are able to…

·        Present a full season of appropriately 14 concerts annually.
·        Perform concerts in the community through our initiatives, “Thank You For Serving,” “Warrior Café” and 
         the Potter Violin Chamber music series.

·        Educate our youth through special programs like the annual county wide concert for 2nd graders, 
         serving 12,000 youth.

·        Provide education programs like “Color the Music” serving 400 youth, and Summer String and Summer
         Choral Institutes serving 300 youth and adults.

·        Provide concert enhancements which include pre-concert lectures, Master Classes, “Meet the
         Musicians,” and Encore Hours at Strathmore, reaching over 1,400 people.
 

In short, they are the reason Music Works Wonders at the National Philharmonic.


Please support our musicians today as we prepare for the 2020-21 season. Your funds will help supplement lost wages for their performances and rehearsals. Now more than ever, the music of National Philharmonic will be needed when our community returns to normal. And when that happens, we will be ready to welcome you to enjoy the music and all it has to offer!
