Additional Information

We want you to know that the health and safety of our audiences, musicians and staff are our first priority. As of 6/7/22, there are no special health and safety protocols in place for the 22|23 season. Future updates will be provided to ticket holders prior to the performance in our event reminder emails in case new health protocols are in effect. We appreciate your ongoing support!

I’ve noticed Boise Phil isn’t performing the Classics Series in Nampa. Why?

Our Classics Series performances in Nampa are paused due to low ticket sales in that region. We care deeply about the West Treasure Valley and want to ensure that our programming is accessible to all – our classroom education programs, community engagement and other special performances will continue in Nampa and across the entire West Valley.
