Taken from www.dictionary.com/doctor/faq/p/phil-sym.html :

Quote:
Q. Are philharmonic and symphony the same?

A. Yes.


A philharmonic is a symphony orchestra or the group that supports it. A symphony is a large orchestra. An orchestra is a large group of musicians who play together on various instruments, usually including strings, woodwinds, brass instruments, and percussion instruments. So, the answer is 'yes' that philharmonic and symphony orchestra are synonymous.
