Our Board

The Arapahoe Philharmonic Board of Directors is made up of both musicians and community members committed to artistic excellence and community outreach. We have a wonderful organization and its growth and success for over 65 years has been remarkable. The board serves the important purpose of ensuring that the orchestra is financially stable so that it can be free to do what it does best. As a result, we have built a board that includes leaders from a variety of business and professional disciplines, as well as music education. We continue to seek additional members to enhance our diverse board, including individuals with fundraising, human resources, leadership, legal or marketing experience in a business or nonprofit environment. If you are considering board membership, there is further information here. The following individuals currently make up the Arapahoe Philharmonic Board:
