The Orchestra performs a subscription season in four cities in the San Francisco Bay Area -- San Francisco, Berkeley, Lafayette, and Palo Alto -- and is regularly heard on tour in United States and internationally. In 2005 the Orchestra debuted at the BBC Proms, Snape Maltings (UK) and the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam as part of its European tour. In 1990, Philharmonia began a successful collaboration with the Mark Morris Dance Group.

Joint productions have included Purcell's Dido and Aeneas; Vivaldi's Gloria; Handel's L'Allegro, il Penseroso ed il Moderato; and Rameau's ballet-opera Platée. Philharmonia has made a number of recordings for Harmonia Mundi, Reference Recordings and BMG and released a self-produced 2-CD set of music of Alessandro Scarlatti on the Avie label. The Orchestra was named "Ensemble of the Year" for 2004 by Musical America. External Links: Official Web Site Magnatune Artist Page - listen for free and buy music. Read more on Last.fm.
