New Philharmonic

If you haven’t yet experienced the MAC’s own professional orchestra, you don’t know what you’ve been missing! Proud to call the College of DuPage home for four decades, the New Philharmonic combines extraordinary talent with moving musical pieces that ignite the stage and leave audiences raving.

Throughout the season, you’ll find a diverse selection of orchestral programming from custom musical scores to timeless classics, Broadway favorites to ballets and operas, and solo performances to grand-scale events.

New Philharmonic is the winner of the 2020 Illinois Council of Orchestra’s
Programming of the Year Award.
