About Philharmonic Center at Artis—Naples
Welcome to the home of Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker in Naples! The Naples Philharmonic was founded in 1982 and in its first season performed four concerts as a chamber orchestra. Since then, the ensemble has grown in scope, size and artistic impact and now performs over 140 orchestral and chamber concerts, as well as opera and ballet, education, community and special event concerts between September through June each year. In 2014-15, Artis—Naples welcomed internationally renowned conductor Andrey Boreyko to his first season as the Naples Philharmonic Music Director. In 2009, Jack Everly was named Principal Pops Conductor and continues today in that role. In 2018-19, the Naples Philharmonic welcomes a host of internationally recognized guest artists, including organist Cameron Carpenter, mezzo-soprano Susan Graham, violinist Gil Shaham and twin pianists Christina and Michelle Naughton, among others.
