Celebrating 70 years at the forefront of music-making in the UK, we are proud to have the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (RPO) as our resident orchestra.
With a wider reach than any other UK large ensemble, the RPO has truly become Britain’s national orchestra.
The orchestra’s regional programme, plus regular performances at Cadogan Hall, Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall and a hugely popular series at the Royal Albert Hall, are conducted by a distinguished roster of musicians: Charles Dutoit, appointed Artistic Director and Principal Conductor in 2009 after a decades-long association with the RPO; Pinchas Zukerman, the inspirational Principal Guest Conductor; Alexander Shelley, the dynamic young Principal Associate Conductor since January 2015, and the esteemed Permanent Associate Conductor Grzegorz Nowak.Click here to find out more about the RPO’s 2017/18 season Read our Beginner’s Guide to seeing an RPO concert at Royal & Derngate
