MEET OUR MEMBERS
Daniel Barenboim, RPS Gold Medal 2007: Classical music will not survive unless we change our attitude and make it something that is essential to our lives. Join the RPS if you believe in the future of music.
DID YOU KNOW?
An early member of the Society, who played in our first season in 1813, was the Afro-European violinist George Polgreen Bridgetower (1778-1860) – the original dedicatee of Beethoven’s Kreutzer Sonata.
The creativity of living composers lies at the heart of the RPS. We support new music through commissioning and repeat performances, workshops, residency schemes and by encouraging interaction between composers and audiences.
adj. devoted to music; music-loving
