After nearly three years of silence in the concert hall, The Richmond Hill Philharmonic Orchestra is delighted to present our 2023/24 Season. This season is full of music that reflects hope, imagination, dreams, the fusion of nationalities, cultures and ethnicities, and a connection with literature, art and dance, to form a celebration of the manifestation of our collective culture.
Like instruments in an orchestra, nature’s elements do not compete, instead they produce a harmony that sings to our eyes. Many composers have been inspired to describe earth, water, air, and fire through music that sings to our imagination. Join us to align your mind, heart, eyes, ears, and imagination as we share a symphony of sound that celebrates the Elements.
