The Scottsdale Philharmonic has been nominated for the 2018 Governor’s Arts Awards for its substantial contributions to arts and culture statewide. This is the third consecutive year the group has been nominated.
The Scottsdale Philharmonic started presenting its free concerts to the community in 2012. “Our mission is to bring classical music to people of all ages in the community,” says Joy Partridge, president and co-founder of the Scottsdale Philharmonic. “We’re honored to again be nominated for this award.”
The organization has more than 120 volunteers, including 75 professional musicians, board members and volunteers who share their time and talent for each concert.
Arizona Citizens for the Arts, in partnership with the Governor’s Office, will announce three finalists in each category Feb. 6 with the winners presented at a dinner event March 22.
Dates for Scottsdale Philharmonic’s free concerts include Feb. 18, April 15, May 20, Oct. 14 and Nov. 18.
