Corporate Membership

Many companies look for distinctive associations that demonstrate their charitable outlook and inspire colleagues and clients. We invite you to join forces with a venerable royal institution that is a vital and respected force at the heart of British music, and continues to set the tempo for the future.

Our awards, grants and commissions for bright young performers and composers transform their prospects at a critical stage in their career. Our prestigious RPS Music Awards are highly coveted and recognised sector-wide as one of the great occasions in the British music calendar, celebrating excellence and innovation. In our advocacy for the enduring power and worth of classical music, we reach a wide audience nationally and our network of members, partners, trustees, award-winners and holders of our prestigious Gold Medal includes the most celebrated names in classical music.

We would be delighted to talk to you about how your company might enjoy a distinctive association with the Royal Philharmonic Society, helping us fulfil our charitable aims, and giving you, your colleagues and clients a rewarding partnership in return.

By joining us, your company will have the opportunity to:

  • enhance its brand and corporate reputation through positive publicity
  • entertain key stakeholders at exclusive events including the annual RPS Music Awards
  • create opportunities for networking at a high level
  • add value to marketing campaigns by reaching a defined audience

All our corporate partnerships are unique. You may choose one of our Corporate Membership packages outlined below or you may instead like to put your name to a particular aspect of our work or sponsor one of our prestigious RPS Music Awards. Please contact Alison Pavier, our Development Consultant, to discuss your interests. Alternatively, you can also simply complete our online Corporate Membership form and we look forward to talking further about creating a worthwhile association.
