Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

Support - Organisations

RPO Partnerships

As a registered charity, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (RPO) is supported by organisations, individuals and families - RPO Partners, who want to make a difference; they recognise the positive impact music has on our society, the importance of a stimulating cultural sector and the essential contribution made by the RPO.

The Orchestra’s ground breaking and award-winning community and education programme RPO resound, which reaches 30,000 people each year, requires annual funding in the region of £500,000 and RPO Partners play a vital role in helping achieve this financial imperative. Funds raised also enable the Orchestra to enhance its artistic output, which in turn contributes to its continued success and development.

Through their vision, generosity and enthusiasm, RPO Partners help steward a tradition of artistic excellence and national pride whilst gaining a close, personal connection with the ‘Nation’s Favourite Orchestra’ and its musicians.

For further information about RPO Partnerships and how you can help make a difference, please contact Huw Davies, Development Director at the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, on 020 7608 8800 or contact him here.
