The Colorado Springs Philharmonic is governed by a Board of Directors who oversee the strategic direction of our organizational activities. Their powers, duties, and responsibilities are exercised and regulated in accordance with our mission as a not-for-profit 501(c)3, with a benevolent eye toward the good of the community.
Greetings from the Philharmonic Board of Directors, where critical thinking meets a deep passion for great music and community impact. As Board members, we have an obligation to represent the community of the Pikes Peak Region to ensure a flourishing Philharmonic for generations to come. In this work, I am humbled to be joined by community leaders and advocates, patrons and musicians who are united to sustain access to great musical performances this year and for years to come.
