Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
RPS Corporate Member
In 2016, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (RPO) celebrated 70 years at the forefront of music-making in the UK. Its home base since 2004 at London’s Cadogan Hall serves as a springboard for fourteen residencies across the country, often in areas where access to live orchestral music is very limited. With a wider reach than any other UK large ensemble, the RPO has truly become Britain’s national orchestra. As the 70th Anniversary Season unfolds, the RPO’s versatility marks it out as one of today’s most open-minded, forward-thinking symphony orchestras. Now it proudly looks forward to the next 70 years.
