Mansfield Philharmonic

Mansfield Philharmonic An all-volunteer orchestra that offers free and accessible concert performances in Mansfield, TX. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
(7)

Founded by three college friends and fellow musicians in May 2017, the Next Gen Chamber Players serves as the first performing orchestra in the city of Mansfield. Upon learning about the strings program in the Mansfield Independent School District starting later that fall, the founders decided the new orchestra students would greatly benefit from having a performing ensemble in their neighborhood! The first (of many) hurdles was to first find adequate rehearsal facilities and concert venue. After reaching out to several organizations within the city, the NGCP had a breakthrough when the gracious members of First United Methodist Church in Mansfield offered their facilities for rehearsals and concerts. In addition, board members of the Mansfield Commission for the Arts offered their full support and invited the NGCP to headline at the historic Farr Best Theater for our first concert event in June 2017! These incredible partnerships helped the NGCP officially become a part of the Mansfield community and begin our mission to educate and engage.

Mission: The Next Gen Chamber Players was founded on the principles of providing accessible and quality musical engagement for all ages, whilst promoting the cultural arts through communal outreach and education.

General Manager: Fletcher Rudd (Artistic Director)
