The Scottsdale Philharmonic has announced its 2023 concert schedule for Sundays, Feb. 19, March 19 and May 7, all from 4-6 p.m. at the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts.
Conducted by world-class principal conductor Maestro Dmitry Polyakov, the Feb. 19 concert will be an orchestral and choral performance of Beethoven’s 9th Symphony, his final symphony and considered one of his best, according to a press release.
“As our Maestro Dmitry, who is an outstanding interpreter of Beethoven’s music, will conduct this symphony, we expect this concert to sell out so get your tickets soon,” said Joy Partridge, president and co-founder of the Scottsdale Philharmonic, in the release.
“We are so lucky and privileged that internationally-acclaimed Maestro Dmitry has become a major part of our orchestra and will help us build a great symphonic orchestra in the future years as we perform unforgettable concerts,” Partridge continued.
She also added that the Philharmonic is looking forward to an expanded 2023-24 concert schedule at the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts, with eight concerts including an Independence Day concert and two holiday concerts.
“The vision of enhancing the Scottsdale Philharmonic into a major symphony in Arizona is just beginning,” Partridge explained. “We are in the process of expanding our executive board for the Philharmonic and welcome anyone who might want to join us in sharing our new vision of a first-class symphony in Scottsdale."
Partridge added that they also welcome anyone who would like to be part of the Scottsdale Philharmonic Advocacy Alliance, whose members are passionate about classical music. For information, contact Joy@scottsdalephilharmonic.com or 602-703-1466.
“We went to thank our Mayor David Ortega, the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts, and all of our donors and patrons,” Partridge says. “We are so grateful to all of you. As a non-profit, the orchestra always welcomes volunteers and support.”
