Who We Are

Your Symphony Orchestra

“The mission of the Las Vegas Philharmonic is to perform music that enriches and educates, helping to build a vibrant, culturally rich community.”

The Las Vegas Philharmonic is Southern Nevada's only professional symphony orchestra.

Founded in 1998 by Music Director and Conductor Laureate Harold Weller and long-time Las Vegas arts supporters Susan and Andrew Tompkins, the Las Vegas Philharmonic made a bold stake for artistic credibility with its inaugural concert, a performance of Mahler’s Symphony No. 2, “Resurrection” in 1999. The orchestra performed this magnificent work yet again to a sold out hall as resident company for the grand opening of The Smith Center for the Performing Arts in March 2012.
