Eric Garcia, conducting for the Boise Philharmonic.


The Boise Philharmonic has been serving the Treasure Valley for more than 60 years. In fact, it is the longest continuously running cultural organization in the state. And even in the middle of a pandemic, the Phil is finding a way to safely bring musical experiences back to the area. 

Joining Idaho Matters live to talk about what the Boise Phil will be getting up to this weekend is the organization’s Music Director Eric Garcia.
