We create thrilling experiences in music

Donate to help ensure a bright future for orchestral music

Public funding for education and the arts is declining. This makes it increasingly challenging for us to carry out our work and enrich people’s lives with thrilling experiences in music. The Philharmonia is constantly developing and delivering a broad programme of activities that brings music to local communities across the UK and helps emerging artists start successful careers.

Your gift, whether one-time or recurring, makes a vital difference.
Donate today and help us enrich lives with music.
