The highlight of our educational program is the Erie Junior Philharmonic. The Jr. Phil has increased its numbers to more that sixty young people who gather to rehearse and perform from September to June.
The Music Director of the Jr. Phil is Robert Dolwick; Second Trumpet of the Erie Philharmonic. As part of this program, individual ensembles are offered to encourage students within their own section of the orchestra. There are two string programs, which feed into the Jr. Phil, the Intermezzo Strings and the Prelude Strings, led by Orchestra violinist Jennifer Jansen. The Woodwind Ensemble is led by Principal Flute, LeAnne Wistrom; the Brass Ensemble by Robert Dolwick; and the Percussion Ensemble by Orchestra Percussionist, Brad Amidon.
