Stop by for a preseason warmup

by

The Boise Philharmonic is gearing up for its 2015-2016 season beginning Friday, Sept. 25, with eight concerts. Some of the highlights include guest artists Joseph FireCrow, playing the Native American flute in October; audience favorite the Holiday Pops in December; and Changlu Wu, playing the pipa, a Chinese string instrument, in February 2016.

To kick off the season, the Philharmonic welcomes the public to an open house at the Esther Simplot Performing Arts Academy (6-8 p.m., 516 S. Ninth St.), where members of the Youth Orchestra will provide live chamber music in a string quartet. Philharmonic subscribers can pick up their season tickets during the event and tickets will also be available for purchase.
