Orchestra Musicians

Every single Boise Phil musician has her or his own story of grit, determination, hard work, failure and triumph. We are incredibly lucky to have each of these individuals as a part of our Boise community, where they encourage us to strive harder in pursuit of our goals. We invite you to meet the artists who make the music.
