The Philharmonia Orchestra is a world-class performing ensemble and gives over 150 concerts every season on a huge range of platforms.

The Philharmonia is available to hire to perform at your event, festival, concert series or venue. As well as performing on the concert platform, the Philharmonia has a track record playing at galas, fundraising events and private functions.

“It’s always a pleasure to work with the Philharmonia Orchestra. Quite apart from the innovative nature of their digital projects and the outstanding quality of their artistic work generally, they take the time to try to understand our own strategic needs and respond to them as flexibly as they can. That’s what makes for genuine, long-term partnerships. And they’re nice people too!”

Paul Keene, Director of Programming, Symphony Hall Birmingham

“We love performing with the Philharmonia. All our choristers learn the piano and an orchestral instrument, and it is very inspiring for them to see and hear how an orchestra of the highest quality works and makes music together. In their turn the players are very appreciative of the Choir, and their friendliness and total professionalism supports me hugely in my role as Conductor”.
