Coming up in Summer 2022, we are delighted to announce the launch of the WFMT Orchestra Series! This new series combines the Los Angeles Philharmonic (Summer), Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra (Fall), a new to-be-announced orchestra for the Winter quarter, and the San Francisco Symphony (Spring) into a single year-round series.

The WFMT Orchestra Series kicks off in late June, 2022 with the Los Angeles Philharmonic presenting a stunning set of 13 concert broadcasts.
