Statement of Mission
The mission of the National Philharmonic is
to be the dynamic organization of choice providing the highest quality
orchestral, choral and other musical experiences to enrich and inspire
the lives of people in Montgomery County, the Washington, DC metropolitan
area and beyond through concerts and educational programs for all ages.
The Philharmonic serves the residents of Montgomery County and the entire
Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Area. The primary goal of the organization
is to provide audiences with high quality, professional performances at
a convenient location and at affordable prices. The National Philharmonic
also aims to appeal to the diverse cultural backgrounds of the community
through its musical performances and education programs.
In carrying out its goal to make classical music and concert going a part
of daily life for young people, the Philharmonic actively pursues opportunities
to reach a broader community. Programs such as the ALL KIDS, ALL FREE,
ALL THE TIME and education concerts in partnership with the Music Center
at Strathmore and Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) for MCPS second
grader students help the National Philharmonic achieve its goal of allowing
all children the opportunity to attend an orchestra concert.
