LaBelle The Phil Strings 2021 Holiday.JPG

The New Hampshire Philharmonic is the state’s premier training orchestra, offering concerts and educational programs to audiences and students across New Hampshire and Northern Massachusetts.  We are a community-based 70+ person orchestra performing 10 concerts annually at Seifert Performing Arts Center in Salem, New Hampshire located in Salem High School. 


The New Hampshire Philharmonic is the oldest orchestra in the state, tracing its roots to 1895.  The Philharmonic exists to connect people to the power of classical music, through compelling concerts and engaging programs. The orchestra serves as a living laboratory, bringing together the finest student, amateur and professional musicians from across New Hampshire. The Philharmonic provides educational outreach programs to area students and adults.


“A fine arts flagship for New Hampshire”

New Hampshire Union Leader


The Philharmonic delivers on its mission of educational outreach programs and services in a number of ways.

  • Presenting an annual children’s concert (with our ever-popular instrument petting zoo)

  • Inviting student musicians to play at NH Phil concerts

  • Pre-concert talks by the music director before each performance

  • Mentoring student members of the orchestra


“My experiences with the New Hampshire Philharmonic were of critical importance to my growth as a musician.”

Grammy-award winning composer John Adams


The Philharmonic serves as a living laboratory for the best students and amateurs from New Hampshire and Northern Massachusetts to work with professional musicians to present engaging renderings of the core repertoire. The Philharmonic complements the many fine orchestras of New Hampshire that are composed predominantly of professional musicians.


“Professional-caliber musicianship… tight, well-drilled and confident”



The Philharmonic provides engaging and high-quality concerts of classical and semi-classical music to residents from towns across New Hampshire and Northern Massachusetts.


“If you’re interested in music made locally, the Philharmonic is well worth your attention”
