The Abilene Philharmonic Association unleashes the power of music to entertain, educate, and inspire through live symphonic music and community engagement.
The Abilene Philharmonic has been enriching the cultural life of the “Big Country” in West Central Texas since 1950. Today, Music Director and Conductor David Itkin leads the orchestra in world class performances that draw audiences from more than 50 Texas cities. Its concert seasons includes, seven regular season concerts with guest artists from the ranks of Van Cliburn competition winners and incredible programming such as the premiere of “Ansel Adams: America” by Dave and Chris Brubeck. The orchestra provides a classroom curriculum that follows with live performances for school children, master classes, a young artist competition, and its TicketReach effort enables a broad section of the community to experience inspiring entertainment.
The Abilene Philharmonic is currently seeking funding for its musician pay. Donations will help subsidize the cost of providing the highest tier of professional grade music right here in the Big Country.
