The Reading Philharmonic Orchestra recognizes the current hardships people are facing across our nation. We are saddened and disheartened by the racism, violence, and unrest taking place. We stand alongside everyone who is affected by inequality, discrimination, and social injustice. The Reading Philharmonic Orchestra has no tolerance for racism. We are committed to welcoming all individuals while providing a safe place to join together and make music.

All concerts and rehearsals are canceled for this season as per the recommendations from CDC

The Reading Philharmonic Orchestra is a non-profit, musical organization based in the Reading, PA, Berks County area. It is supported by the Reading Music Foundation and through donations. It consists of musicians of all ages and experience and is open to anyone who has an instrument can become part of the orchestra.


Our 2020-2021 rehearsal season is well underway! We are always excited to welcome new musicians. If you play an orchestral instrument, look at our Join the Orchestra page for more information on playing with us. It doesn't matter whether you are 9 or 90, or if you play first or fifth stand; joining is open to all musicians!
