The NIH Community
Orchestra (known initially as the NIH Chamber Orchestra) began meeting
in October 1996 to provide an orchestral outlet for the rich and
diverse musical talent of the NIH and HHS research community. In
the following year, it added woodwinds and brasses and quickly expanded
its size and repertoire. The NIHCO roster often includes employees
of numerous other government agencies (including NASA, LOC, DOJ),
local high school students and educators, and members of the general
NIH Philharmonia Orchestra
Philharmonia is an all volunteer orchestra founded at the National
Institutes of Health in January 2005 under the professional musical
direction of Dr. Nancia D’Alimonte. The
orchestra was established by a core group of NIH scientists and
federal workers with the goal to play orchestral music from all
genres in free concerts open to the public. Building
community while inspiring and educating audiences has been at the
heart of the NIH Philharmonia's mission since its founding in 2005.
The orchestra is always looking for players who are committed
to sharing a passion for music with the community.
Philharmonia performs a four-concert season from October to May,
at St. Elizabeth Catholic Church in Rockville. 19th and
20th Century composers plus world premieres make up the
repertoire for the season. Concerts are
performed to capacity audiences—a testament to the success of the
mission of this unique civic orchestra. Rehearsals
are Tuesday evenings in Bethesda. For information
