Royal Liverpool Philharmonic

Overview

Founded in 1840 by a group of Liverpool music-lovers, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic is one the world’s oldest concert societies and throughout its history, has been at the heart of Liverpool’s cultural life. The original vision of its founders has remained a driving force and is interpreted today in Liverpool Philharmonic’s mission “to promote the love of music and music-making” at the centre of which is the award-winning Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and its associated ensembles and concert series; Liverpool Philharmonic Hall, one of the UK’s premier arts and entertainment venues; the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Choir; Liverpool Philharmonic Youth Company incorporatingYouth Orchestra, Choir, and Children’s Choirs; and an extensive learning programme which is recognised as a national leader in its field in its quality, reach and impact on our communities. Liverpool Philharmonic presents more than 400 concerts and events at Liverpool Philharmonic Hall including in its smaller scale venue, Music Room, and venues across the City annually. More than 350,000 children and adults engage with Liverpool Philharmonic annually, either as ticket buyers for performances or as participants in music workshops and associated events.
