In 2014, The Woollahra Philharmonic Orchestra received the Highly Commended for Most Innovative Cultural/Arts Initiative award for our outstanding contribution to our community from Woollahra Council. This was a significant mile stone in the WPO’s history and it is one we continue to share with our families and friends who support us, encourage us and motivate us to strive for higher and higher standards; and we share it with our audience without whom, this would never be realised. .
