Phoenix is a Boston-based orchestra with the mission of presenting classical music in social and accessible atmosphere for all audiences. We strive to perform programs with music by composers of all races and gender identifications. In 2018 we gave our premiere performance at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in downtown Boston. We will return to the Gardner in 2019 to open the Museum's 2019-2020 season in September. We also have a one-of-a-kind residency at Aeronaut Brewing Co. in Somerville, the first such partnership between an orchestra and a brewery in the United States. We started the orchestra when most of us were fresh out of graduate school at New England Conservatory and had little understanding that we were starting a business. Five years in we've realized that we obviously need professional, experienced help to repair and maintain our relationship with the IRS but with a budget around $50k / season have little capital to spend. We are looking for any incredibly generous help in this matter and hoping to add someone to our Board who can help us grow in the future and wants to be involved with a great, passionate group of musicians on a journey that's only getting better!
