Your Symphony Orchestra
The Las Vegas Philharmonic (LVP), led by Music Director Donato Cabrera, established its presence in Southern Nevada in 1998 and has a roster of 74 dedicated professional musicians. The LVP believes music is essential to a strong community and remains committed to providing a wide array of programming both in-person and digital that enhance the lives of our residents and culture of our city. Exciting additions to the organization’s programs include the newly created “Behind the Stand”, a premium membership experience inviting exploration and discovery of music, composers, and history with a Vegas twist. The inaugural Arts & Impact Residency in 2020-2021 utilizes performance and partnership to create change through collaboration with world-class cellist and TED Fellow, Joshua Roman. With these additions, the Philharmonic features our esteemed musicians in traditional and reimagined approaches to deliver the music and artistry that has become a vital part of Southern Nevada’s cultural community.
Community engagement and education remain a priority and focus. Our rich history of free music education programs continues to serve through our newly digitized annual Youth Concert Series, delivered to schools throughout Southern Nevada via closed circuit streaming – affording thousands of children access to music education in a specially curated concert. The annual Concerto Competition recognizes and encourages emerging talent among Nevada youth in the context of music performance. Music Van, our mobile music education and enrichment program serves the broader community outside of the concert hall with engaging and in-depth content.
The Las Vegas Philharmonic is a founding resident company of The Smith Center for the Performing Arts and looks forward to returning to the Reynolds Hall stage. As a 501(c)(3) organization, the Philharmonic’s community, education, and artistic programs are made possible by the generous support of individuals and corporations. Funding to support our organization has been provided by Nevada Humanities through Congress and the National Endowment for the Humanities as part of the CARES Act economic stabilization plan of 2020. Las Vegas Philharmonic’s Education programs are proudly sponsored in part by Green Valley Grocery, Cox Communications, CA Hartnell, Nevada Energy, and The Bennett Family Foundation.
