We are volunteer musicians committed to developing our individual musicianship so that we can provide high quality, low cost classical symphony orchestra concerts to our community. We share our love of music by creating programs that include both the familiar and the adventurous, with tools to make them accessible and enjoyable, such as pre-concert discussions, audience engagement, and innovative themes.
While we are an auditioned orchestra, we strive to be as inclusive as possible by giving less experienced musicians the opportunity to work with those who are more accomplished and by maintaining a supportive and collegial rehearsal environment. We work to expand our audiences by making our concerts inviting – while at the same time gently challenging our listeners to expand their horizons.
We need a regular performance venue that can accommodate a 50+ piece orchestra with functional acoustics and adequate parking, as well as provide a welcoming and accessible experience for our audiences.
Our reasonably priced tickets are the most affordable classical music in town! Students attend free with paying adults and additional discounts are available.
“My experience with the Pikes Peak Phil turned me into the musician and teacher that I am today. My mentors there imparted expressivity, musicality and creativity as well as tolerance, resilience, and perseverance.” — Ryan Rosete, oboist
