The mission of the FOOTHILLS PHIILHARMONIC is to enrich the lives of the residents of the Upstate region of South Carolina through quality performances of fine orchestral literature. Through outreach programs, our volunteer members work with young adults, the goal being to fostering an appreciation and love for music and the arts. In conjunction with other organizations, we assist in fulfilling the needs of the community.
Foothills Philharmonic is an all-volunteer orchestra made up of accomplished nonprofessional musicians from the Upstate region. Orchestra membership includes individuals from many walks of life: part-time musicians, teachers, business and professional people, homemakers and more.
Membership in the Foothills Philharmonic is open to amateur and professional musicians. Avocational musicians are welcome and no audition is required although training in youth orchestra, college orchestra, or professional orchestra, in the Greenville Concert Band or an equivalent band is suggested as necessary experience. Interested musicians should contact FP Personnel Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
