Waltham Philharmonic Orchestra
PO Box 541188
Waltham, MA 02454
Founded in 1985, the Waltham Philharmonic
Orchestra is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization
dedicated to performing baroque, classic, romantic
and contemporary music of symphonic literature. It is
dedicated to meeting the cultural, educational and
social needs of the greater Waltham area.
The orchestra provides a creative outlet for its
members who love to learn, perform and enjoy the
orchestral repertory, but do not depend on it for their
livelihood. Members, who give freely of their time,
come from all walks of life, and share a common love
of performing great music from composers of the
past and present.
The orchestra enhances the cultural life of the
communities it serves by “giving back” to them
performances in which the audience can enjoy and
learn, in exchange for their local support.
The Orchestra performs three subscription
concerts and one Holiday Pops concert each year.
This is a community group and all may come and
play. Interested players or others who may wish to
volunteer behind the scenes may contact theWPO by
calling the orchestra or emailing
Rehearsals are Monday nights from 7:15-9:45 at
Waltham's Clark Government Center, 119 School St.
Performances are usually late October, late
November, March and May.

Waltham India Market is a “one-stop-shop,”
covering the expanse of the globe, including food
from Central America, Africa, India and China. With
Waltham being such an ethnically diverse city, owner
Yousuf Raheem wants to be able to offer something
for everybody.
The 9,000-square-foot store has a large produce
section with exotic fruits and vegetables, a deli, dairy,
bakery, and a refrigerated and frozen meat section,
and butcher. There are aisles of boxed and bagged
spices featuring intricate combinations from different
Indian regions including combinations from Northern
India, Pakistan and Bengal, organized more by taste
than region.
Aside from staples such as flour and rice offered
in 20-lb bags, the store has a large snack aisle.
Raheem stocks some of his favorites, including
Chakali, a crunchy type of chip, and the Indian Frito-
Lay “Spanish Tomato Tango” chips.
What makes this market a really fun place to shop
is an ethnic food court located downstairs, offering
food from Mexican to Chinese to African, and the
Kabab & Tandoor restaurant owned by Raheem's
nephew and sister-in-law.
“Every time I go I find something new, exciting,
and delicious. This place makes me love living in
Waltham (even more)! “- Jen L.
