The Naples Philharmonic was founded in 1982 and in its first season performed four concerts as a chamber orchestra. Since then, the ensemble has grown in scope, size and artistic impact and now performs over 140 orchestral and chamber concerts, as well as opera and ballet, education, community and special event concerts between September through June each year.
In 2014-15, Artis—Naples welcomed internationally renowned conductor Andrey Boreyko to his first season as the Naples Philharmonic Music Director. In 2009, Jack Everly was named Principal Pops Conductor and continues today in that role.
In 2019-20, the Naples Philharmonic celebrates the 250th anniversary of Ludwig van Beethoven’s birth. In observance of this special occasion, the season’s programming embraces Beethoven by highlighting his most iconic works. Each Masterworks program features at least one of his works — including all five of his piano concerti — and the season concludes with Symphony No. 9, the final symphony of the legendary composer’s career. The orchestra welcomes a number of internationally acclaimed guest musicians, including pianist Emanuel Ax, harpist and composer Hannah Lash, cellist Kian Soltani and violinist Gidon Kremer, among others.
