The Las Vegas Philharmonic is a major American symphony orchestra, based in Las Vegas, Nevada. It was founded in 1998[1] by Music Director and Conductor Laureate Harold Leighton Weller and long-time Las Vegas arts supporters Susan Tompkins[2] and Andrew Tompkins.[3]

Since October 2012, the Las Vegas Philharmonic has been based at the world class Smith Center for the Performing Arts. It previously was home at Artemus W. Ham Concert Hall on the campus of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Nine guest conductors have led the orchestra through the 2012-2013 season, each auditioning for the position of principal conductor.[4] Las Vegas Philharmonic is sometimes referred to as Las Vegas Philharmonic Orchestra.
