About the Event

The Scottsdale Symphonic Orchestra was founded in 2023 to provide highly skilled musicians the opportunity to perform high-caliber live concert events that uplift, inspire, and culturally enrich its members and the community. 

The nonprofit organization was founded on the values of musical excellence, kindness, and respect. Its musicians live in the community and come from all walks of life—professionally trained musicians, business owners, military officers, teachers, doctors, engineers, homemakers, and even pilots—yet they all share the same love of music that has brought us all here today. 

The orchestra is in the midst of a worldwide search for a music director. During the 2023–24 season, the final candidates for the permanent position will be leading the orchestra as guest conductors.
