Since its founding by George Eastman in 1922, the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra has been committed to enriching and inspiring our community through the art of music! Each year, your RPO provides the greater Rochester area with exceptional, engaging performances to enrich and inspire. Each season is crafted to create a diverse mix of education programs, progressive performances that blend genres, and showcase talented musicians.

Inspiring, enriching and engaging our community...

Your RPO is committed to providing the greater Rochester area with exceptional, engaging performances to enrich and inspire. Our founder, George Eastman, believed that all Rochester residents should experience musical learning throughout their lives. With that in mind, the RPO became one of the first orchestras in the country to place an emphasis on music education for all members of our community.

This dedication to lifelong musical engagement continues today. Each season, the RPO presents nearly 50 concerts and more than 200 related events that serve a diverse population totaling approximately 100,000 children and adults. Our programs are comprehensive in their content and most are offered free of charge.
