Sound Bites

A digital series from the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra.

Musician Moments feature Philharmonic Musicians as they sit down with Executive Director Paul Helfrich to discuss orchestral music, their background, and perform beautiful music.

OPO Ed videos are supplemental educational videos about the instrument families, that can be used to continuing learning about music while at home.

The OPO On The Record audio series features special archived recordings of your Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra from past performances, including movements from pieces performed in past seasons. Join Music Director Eric Jacobsen each week as he talks through the excerpt, gives a history on it and the composer, and gives a small example of what to listen for while listening to the passage. Then, sit back and enjoy a full high-quality recording of the movement.
