Enriching the Lives of Students Through Musical Experiences

Golden Gate Philharmonic

Every year, the Golden Gate Philharmonic (GGP) enrolls approximately 100 students from the San Francisco Bay Area for performance-driven music education. The professional faculty of GGP teaches K-12 music in a supportive and intimate atmosphere that builds camaraderie and community. Founded in 1995, the GGP offers experiences in full orchestral training, section rehearsals, chamber music, theory classes, concert and recital performances, and annual music camp retreats. Performances include community events at various locations, including the Inn at the Presidio, the Carlton Hotel, the Guardsmen Christmas Tree Lot, and at facilities for people with Alzheimer's disease. Although tuition covers about half of the operating costs, GGP is committed to equal opportunity and provides scholarship support to more than 20% of its students.
