From Music Director Daniel Meyer

While we are not even halfway into our 2016-17 concert season, there are so many memorable musical moments that I will cherish.  From the brilliance of Beethoven’s Eighth, Ken Johnston’s sumptuous Glazunov Concerto, how fun it was to be a rock star for a night with Jeans n’ Classics in a Police tribute, or to play the delightfully ghoulish scores from Tim Burton’s iconic films – the musical memories are rich and I am eager to come back for more.  Our Philharmonic is stronger than ever, and our musicians are coming to each new project with so much enthusiasm and a desire to attain new artistic heights.    

As we finish 2016 and embark with hope into 2017, let me take this opportunity to thank you for your passion for the Erie Philharmonic.  It is an honor to serve this community as Music Director, and I hope you and your family will continue to enjoy how our musicians bring their best to the Warner Theatre stage.  As much as we treasure the Warner as our musical home base, you know that we spend many hours in schools, the Art Museum, community resource centers, and countless other locales throughout northwestern Pennsylvania.  It is a distinct pleasure to hear how the classical music can brighten someone’s life, and we will keep dedicating ourselves to Erie in the best way we know how: through great music.

I wish you and your family the very best for a Happy New Year, and I cannot wait to get back to the stage to bring you more with our superb musicians of the Erie Philharmonic.


Daniel Meyer, Music Director
