"Follow" the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra: Now on SPOTIFY

Our 2015-16 Season will be kicking off in a few short weeks! With our Spotify account, you will be listen to dozens of playlists for free, each filled with the repertoire for each of our Philharmonics, Pops, Sunday Matinee, OrKIDStra, and Special concerts!

Spotify is a musical search engine in which you can create custom playlists, or search for new music to listen to and enjoy on your Laptop, PC, Tablet, or Smartphone.

We at the RPO have created playlists around each 2015-16 season concert for you, our audience members, to get a sneak peek of what's to come during our live performances. The recordings of all musical works have been performed by various ensembles from around the world for you to enjoy at home, in the car, on the way to work, and more. The listening possibilities are nearly endless if you have a Spotify account.

Downloading Spotify is FREE, unless you would like to upgrade to Spotify Premiun ($9.99 per month). A bonus to upgrading is that you have no advertisements to interrupt between movements or pieces. You can also try Spotify Premium (99 cents for 3 months, then $9.99 per month after, if you are satisfied).
