Music

At the Phillips

Welcome to the 2014/2015 concert season


Welcome to the 2014/2015 season of Music at the Phillips. During the last season we welcomed 40 artists for their US or Washington, DC, debuts and gave the premieres of 14 new works by both established and promising young composers. Throughout the coming season we will introduce over 50 artists to Washington audiences and anticipate 4,000 people to attend our concerts—an extraordinary success story for a venue of our size and a striking endorsement of the music we present. Our commitment to upholding the Phillips’s traditions is at the heart of everything we do, as is our determination to construct a season that guarantees great performances and innovative, imaginative programs. I look forward to sharing many concert experiences with you this season.
