Here is what audience members had to say about the season premiere concert on September 10, 2023.

Amazing sound!

Instrumentalists are very prepared and gave 100% to the selections. Maestro Bay was truly exceptional.

The Serenades and Symphonies Concert was engaging, varied, beautifully conducted and played in a venue that offered a rich and satisfying listening experience. I look forward to AZ Phil's next offering!

Attending these concerts has upgraded our date night offerings.

Enjoy our homegrown philharmonic orchestra.

Peter Bay's inspired conducting seems to transport musicians as much as it does listeners. Always a joy.

The Arizona Philharmonic Orchestra was first class. Sunday afternoon at the Ruth Street Theater was the place to be.

The musicians were exceptional; the programming was a perfect blend of genres. The Children's compositions were beautiful, along with the narration. The sound/acoustics at the Ruth Street Theater are the best in town.

What a wonderful performance and venue! Professional level, talented musicians delivered a crisp, lively performance. The venue was great - heard and saw everything perfectly. Looking forward to future concerts!

Finally, a pairing of venue and artists that is truly inspiring and rewarding on so many levels.

AZ Phil was an unexpected pleasure on a Sunday afternoon. Anyone who loves live music should treat themselves to this high-quality, very affordable experience.

An unforgettable musical experience!

I could pick out and hear the individual instruments; the acoustics were stunning.

The Ruth Street Theater is the perfect venue for the AZ Phil! The acoustics are amazing. I felt like I was sitting in the middle of the orchestra

Very professional performance at a venue with amazing acoustics. We are so lucky to have this available to us in Prescott!!

Our next concert is the Sonoran Winds Quintet
