The Thousand Oaks Philharmonic, was founded in December of 2000 as a California registered non-profit educational organization, with its foremost purpose being to provide exceptional music students in the area with an opportunity to be featured as soloists with a professional orchestra. Because of the resounding success of the first concert, the community interest, and a desire to give as many students as possible this remarkable opportunity, additional concerts were added to the season, and now three concerts per year are scheduled.
The greater-Ventura County area is rich in talent, with an unusually high concentration of young artist-level musicians living in our midst. Perhaps it is no coincidence that our schools graduate some of the highest-ranking and well-prepared students in the state, and their level of achievement in other fields naturally mirrors those results. Come to a concert to be inspired, amazed and entertained!
