Golden Gate Philharmonic is a San Francisco-based youth orchestra dedicated to music education for all students, with particular outreach to the ever-growing population of students with little–or no–access to music education through their schools.  Our award-winning, nationally recognized program:

  • Instills discipline, cognitive flexibility and creative competence (all highly transferable life skills);
  • Helps students reach their maximum potential by providing unparalleled training and real-life experience through our stimulating, performance-oriented curriculum;
  • Encourages students to attain the highest standard of musical excellence, often directly reflected in improved academic performance, competence and self-confidence in competitive settings;
  • Nurtures individual growth and knowledge by teaching orchestra, theory and musical competence in an organized and engaging way;
  • Creates a sense of community service and leadership among our participants.

Our 25 years of experience proves that student participation in Golden Gate Philharmonic prepares youth to successfully navigate and excel in leadership roles in their chosen fields and in their communities.
