Education Fund

The Philharmonia's Education Programme is at the heart of the Orchestra’s work, providing many exciting and innovative ways for children and adults to engage with orchestral music.

Working in partnership with Music Hubs, schools, and local community groups all over the UK, we are able to educate and inspire thousands of people every year; through school projects, such as Orchestra Unwrapped; community initiatives, such as Hear and Now; and a variety of study days, workshops, and master classes.

These projects would not be possible without the contributions towards the Education Fund that we receive from both Trusts and generous individuals. Your donation, however large or small, is of great value not only to the Orchestra, but also to the schools, community groups and individuals that we work with.
