The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra is honoured to be participating in The Coronation of Their Majesties The King and The Queen Consort at Westminster Abbey on Saturday 6th May 2023. Conducted by Sir Antonio Pappano, the Coronation Orchestra will comprise a bespoke collection of musicians drawn from orchestras of The former Prince of Wales’ Patronages, including the RPO.
Twelve newly commissioned pieces of music will be performed, showcasing musical talent from across the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth. A range of musical styles and performers will blend tradition, heritage and ceremony with new musical voices of today, reflecting The King’s lifelong love and support of music and the arts.
For 30 years, RPO Resound has been at the forefront of using music-making to enrich the lives of people in communities across the UK and internationally.
Forget notions that orchestral music is something for older people. New research from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra suggests that not only has the proportion of people under 35 listening to orchestral music as part of their daily lives increased in the last five years, young people are now more likely to be listening to it than their parents.
