Enriching your concert experience

Have you ever wanted to find out the back story to the music you’re listening to? Now’s your chance to discover the music as we invite you to enjoy an enhanced live listening experience with EnCue, at selected concerts within the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra’s London season.

EnCue is a downloadable app that delivers programme notes straight to your mobile or tablet device. To participate, simply download EnCue for free and enrich your listening experience throughout the concert(s) by viewing notes about the works you hear, at the exact moment the action is happening on stage.


First trialled in the US, EnCue aims to provide ‘a new level of concert engagement’ by delivering real-time programme notes during a live performance. Using Darkscreen™ Technology, the app is designed to deliver 'glance optimised' information without distracting the viewer, or those around them, from the performance.

“EnCue by Octava is a unique app designed to help and assist the participant through a musical journey. We of course welcome all users, but the tone is specifically aimed towards new and potentially younger audiences, offering a real-time insight into the music being played live on stage by the Orchestra.”

Chris Evans, RPO Director of Press and Marketing
