SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - eMusicWire -- The Scottsdale Philharmonic has announced its 2023 concert schedule for Sundays Feb. 19, March 19 and May 7, all from 4-6 p.m. at the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts, 7380 East Second St.

Conducted by world-class principal conductor Maestro Dmitry Polyakov, the Feb. 19 concert will be an orchestral and choral performance of Beethoven's 9th Symphony (Ode to Joy), his final symphony and considered one of his best. "As our Maestro Dmitry, who is an outstanding interpreter of Beethoven's music, will conduct this symphony, we expect this concert to sell out so get your tickets soon," says Joy Partridge, President and Co-Founder of the Scottsdale Philharmonic.

"We are so lucky and privileged that internationally-acclaimed Maestro Dmitry has become a major part of our orchestra and will help us build a great symphonic orchestra in the future years as we perform unforgettable concerts," says Partridge. "We see how with his magical talent our symphony has improved immeasurably. Since Maestro joined us, we have received continual emails from musicians who want to play in our orchestra under his leadership.  It is so exciting to see the amazing change Dmitry has brought to our symphony.

"We are in the process of expanding our executive board for the Philharmonic and welcome anyone who might want to join us in sharing our new vision of a first-class symphony in Scottsdale.
