The 80-member Arapahoe Philharmonic has been a valuable cultural asset in the Denver metropolitan area since 1953. In addition to its regular season of six masterworks concerts, the orchestra offers many services to the community, including chamber orchestra performances, concerts for elementary school students, a Family Concert, coaching students from area middle schools and high schools, and competition opportunities.
Our competitions are:
- T. Gordon Parks Collegiate Concerto Competition
- Vincent C. LaGuardia, Jr. Conducting Competition
- Vincent C. LaGuardia, Jr. Composition Competition
The T. Gordon Parks Concerto Competition is held annually, while the Vincent C. LaGuardia, Jr. Conducting Competition and the Vincent C. LaGuardia, Jr. Composition Competition are held in alternate years.
