Whilst we are sadly still unable to perform our usual schedule of live performances for you, the musicians of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra are committed to keeping music-making alive in a great variety of entertaining ways. With solo and ensemble videos, online premieres, podcasts, card games, quizzes and more, why not enjoy just some of the highlights of #RPOatHome below?

Watch Spotlites on Facebook
Our Spotlites Series is a series of videos exclusive to our Facebook community that feature music from our socially-distanced Spotlight Series at Cadogan Hall, filmed either to a small audience or behind closed doors. Each bite-sized Spotlite episode airs on a weekday lunchtime and features one piece of music or one movement from these performances.
We launched our Spotlites series with a performance of George Walker’s moving Lyric for Strings. This seven-minute piece was filmed on Remembrance Day 2020. Watch each edition of Spotlites here.
