We are delighted to introduce the online version of our brand new Bicentenary programme booklets, listing all the celebratory events taking place this year.
Summer highlights include a special free BBC Prom on 11 August as we continue our bicentenary celebrations at the Royal Albert Hall. The Prom will feature Frieze, a new work from British composer Mark-Anthony Turnage, and the Society’s most famous commission, Beethoven’s 9th Symphony.
What are you looking forward to most?
Bob Lockyer: Seeing and hearing new dance with a specially composed score is exciting. That's why I asked the RPS to look after the Drummond Fund.
DID YOU KNOW?
From 1819 the Society’s home was the Harmonic Institution built by John Nash in Regents Street. The building was destroyed by fire in 1830 and is now the site of a NatWest Bank.
