RPO Corporate Chair Partners

Companies, individuals and families who are RPO Chair Partners build a strong engagement with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and its musicians by being associated with particular orchestral positions. If you have an affinity with any orchestral instrument, you can choose to have your name associated with that particular instrument in the RPO, get to know your partner musician and become part of the RPO family.

By supporting a position in the Orchestra, you will join an exclusive club of like-minded people who enjoy a close association with the RPO and its musicians. RPO Chair Partners can access an array of benefits, including complimentary tickets and private receptions. Most importantly, funds raised through the programme help underpin the Orchestra’s remarkable community and education programme, RPO Resound, which is one of the RPO’s key priorities.

Why become an RPO Chair Partner?

  • Entertain family and friends at RPO concerts and introduce them to your chosen musician and other members of the Orchestra
  • Enjoy a range of exclusive opportunities, including complimentary tickets for RPO own-promotion concerts and invitations to receptions
  • Become a part of the RPO family; know that your donation is helping the Orchestra achieve its artistic and outreach ambitions
