Now entering its 11th Season, the Arlington Philharmonic (AP) is the only professional symphony orchestra performing in Arlington, VA. Each season, the Philharmonic presents four major public orchestral concerts, plus youth chamber music concerts, school and community performances, and special events.

The Philharmonic is unique among regional professional orchestras because we do not charge admission in order to make excellent, live, professional music performances available to everyone -- at every income, every age.

Please join us for an upcoming concert.
