Noon Concert, Michigan Philharmonic Chamber Ensemble
The MICHIGAN PHILHARMONIC, under the direction of Nan Washburn, now looks forward to its exciting 69th Season, the fourth under the organization's new name. For 65 years, the orchestra was known as the Plymouth Symphony, and also Orchestra Canton for its smaller presentations. Now, as the Michigan Philharmonic, the orchestra continues to provide culturally enriching and educational programming in Plymouth, Canton and surrounding communities. The orchestra plays a full season of concerts from October to May, with several special concerts and events throughout the year. A unique feature of the Michigan Philharmonic is the adventuresome programming which has garnered the orchestra 6 ASCAP awards. The Philharmonic also sponsors the Michigan Philharmonic Youth Orchestra, providing a unique, enriching and exciting musical experience for aspiring young players throughout Southeastern Michigan. In 2013, the orchestra was awarded the prestigious Knight Foundation Arts Challenge Grant and 2nd Place honors from The American Prize, professional orchestra division.
