The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra’s groundbreaking and award-winning Community and Education programme – RPO Resound – has been at the forefront of delivering orchestral outreach projects since its inception in 1993, successfully underpinning the RPO’s extensive programme of UK regional performances and international work. The overarching objective of the programme is to leave a lasting legacy by harnessing the transformative power of music to improve participants’ aspirations, abilities and life chances.

In the last year alone, RPO Resound reached nearly 10,000 people through a range of inspirational and creative experiences delivered by our world-class musicians. The team travel extensively both nationally and internationally to bring meaningful musical experiences to participants in a wide range of settings, from hospital wards to aquariums, prisons to primary schools, and community settings such as our specialist stroke rehabilitation programme in Hull (find out more about STROKESTRA here).

The momentous achievements of the first twenty-five years of RPO Resound were celebrated at a Gala Dinner at Buckingham Palace on 21 March 2018. See the 25th Anniversary Celebration Film here.
