RPO at Home

The musicians of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra want to keep music-making alive during these challenging times. Watch out for online updates in the coming weeks including videos, online premieres, our card game, podcasts and quizzes.  

NEW THIS WEEK:  RPO Trumpets and guests perform Amazing Grace


Continuing with our series of #RPOatHome videos, Adam Wright (RPO Sub-Principal Trumpet) introduces a moving and uplifting performance of the well-loved hymn, Amazing Grace, arranged by Tom Watson. The RPO trumpets (Mike Allen, Adam Wright and Toby Street) are delighted to be joined by special guest and distinguished musician John Wallace CBE, as well as fellow RPO player, Matthew Knight.

Alleviate the boredom of social distancing and get to know the RPO’s musicians with the Orchestra’s own take on a popular card game.

Go to our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, where we will be posting two new player cards each week. Like, share (with #RPOatHome)  and collect our unique Orchestral Scores cards. Comment on our rankings and compare cards against each other on five key categories to see which players top the bill. Download them all to your device to play with friends and family! 

Remember: If your card has a higher score for that category, you win your opponent’s card. The player with the most cards wins.

Download the PDF of the first set of 10 cards here!
