Join Us

Classical music is extraordinary. It uplifts us, consoles us and moves us to action. It continually leads us to new treasures which, once discovered, we cannot imagine living without. Feed your curiosity and love of classical music by joining the Royal Philharmonic Society.

RPS Membership is a doorway to a world of musical discovery.

Among the benefits, members can attend – and exclusively access online – our talks and events in which great artists and musical heroes share their fascinating stories. Find out about our upcoming events. We also invite Members to get involved, sharing your own discoveries with us and why classical music matters to you. You can discover more about the Society’s remarkable 200-year history and its role past and present in championing music and musicians. As a charity, every subscription helps us to help emerging musicians find their voice and fulfil their calling, ensuring classical music continues to thrive for years to come.

Membership unites music lovers and music makers, amateur and professional. Let’s discover together what makes Britain ‘philharmonic’.

If you’ve already read about Membership and the different levels, you can join here.

You can join the Society as an individual or as a couple, you can give Membership as a gift, or your company can also join. To read about the different varieties of Membership and all the benefits that they bring, click below.


Jennifer Bate, organist: My worldwide schedule includes recitals, concertos, recordings, masterclasses and composition. The RPS offers excellent opportunities to meet fellow professionals socially.


Beethoven’s 9th Symphony, commissioned by the Society in 1825, is still the most requested work on the BBC's Desert Island Discs.
