If you’re a student at school or in higher education, you can join the Royal Philharmonic Society for a specially discounted rate. You don’t even need to be studying music.
As a student, the minimum you need to give is £12 a year. In return, you will:
- be able to apply the RPS Composition Prize and the Julius Isserlis Scholarship for free
- receive our monthly e-mail bulletin keeping you updated on the musicians and projects you’ve helped us support
- receive invitations to Members' events
- be able to nominate annually for the Society's highest honours, including the RPS Music Awards, RPS Honorary Membership and RPS Gold Medal
There are two ways to join
Option 1: Donate online
Simply click the button below to set up your Direct Debit (minimum of £12 annually).
PLEASE NOTE: If you are joining as a member as part of a competition application (e.g. RPS Composition Prize, Julius Isserlis Scholarship), please DO NOT check the box which anonymises your donation. If you make your donation anonymous, we will be unable to pair it with your application, which may not be accepted as a result.
Option 2: Donate via cheque
Please download a membership form and send along with a cheque (minimum £12) made payable to the ‘Royal Philharmonic Society’ to RPS, 48 Great Marlborough Street, London W1F 7BB.
Please note, these rates are only available to you as a student and will conclude at the end of the year in which you ultimately graduate. We reserve the right to ask Student Members for proof of studentship at any time.
