ArtsBoston is a nonprofit dedicated to supporting the arts.
Phoenix is an award-winning chamber orchestra presenting music in accessible and social atmospheres for all audiences. Known for its unique approach to audience interaction, the orchestra emphasizes creating real relationships with everybody that comes to see its shows. Starting in 2021 Phoenix welcomed Joshua Weilerstein as Music Director, marking the next chapter in the orchestra’s history.
Since its inception in 2014, when it was called “eminently worth of your attention” (The Boston Globe), Phoenix has been wowing classical music aficionados and rookies alike with its energetic playing, versatile programming, and an individualistic approach to larger orchestral repertoire. At the core of its mission, Phoenix is committed to program and promote composers from groups that traditionally experience difficulty having their voices heard in the orchestral world, including composers that identify as women and BIPOC. The orchestra garnered attention early on, winning the Improper Bostonian’s Boston Best Classical Ensemble in 2017.
