Pearls of the Philharmonic

April 18, 2024 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM Qatar National Convention Centre, Auditorium 3

Celebrate 15 years of incredible music-making with the Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra for the 15-Year-Anniversary Festival! The Philharmonic ushers in the celebration with a variety of performances that will take place in Auditorium 3 at the Qatar National Convention Centre from 18-20 of April, showcasing the breadth and diversity of the Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra.

The Orchestra kicks off the 15-Year-Anniversary Festival by shining the spotlight on talented soloists of the Qatar Philharmonic. Usually, the focus of concerts is put upon the principal player from each orchestra section, however, during this concert we’re giving the opportunity to other magnificent performers within the Philharmonic. The concert will feature an exciting array of solo repertoire from Ravel, Vivaldi, Mozart, Beethoven, and many more. The Philharmonic will be led by passionate German conductor Elias Grandy.
