The Louisville Philharmonia was founded in 2012 by a group of serious amateur and semi-professional orchestral players in order to fill a need in the Louisville area for a community ensemble that plays orchestral music to a high standard. Independent of any other institution, the Louisville Philharmonia is a completely musician-run orchestra with a board of directors made up of playing members. This is our orchestra, and everyone plays a role in making it a success.
We are committed to keeping our concerts free to the public, and as a non-profit organization, we welcome all donations, which are tax-deductible.
Our conducting member is Daniel Spurlock, who brings a wealth of conducting and performing experience to the Louisville Philharmonia. With Bachelors and Masters degrees from Juilliard, he has served as assistant conductor for the Louisville Orchestra and National Orchestral Association in New York, as well as being a previous conductor of the Louisville Youth Orchestra. He currently is music director of Beargrass Christian Church.
