RPS Young Musicians Recitals

The Royal Philharmonic Society invests in the future of music by encouraging and nurturing the next generation of talented musicians.

In November 2013 the RPS held its first independent Young Musicians' Recital, at the beautiful home of Sir Vernon and Lady Ellis in South Kensington. Tickets for our Young Musicians Recital include pre-concert drinks, followed by the recital, on-stage discussion with the musicians and then a buffet supper. The event is held in aid of our Young Musicians Programme.
