Between March 2020 and June 2021, we cancelled 195 performances.

Thanks to the generosity of our family, we return to the concert halls having reaffirmed our pioneering and entrepreneurial spirit with sector leading online performances of the highest possible quality including:

• 13 Streamed from Southbank Centre concerts from our London home at the Royal Festival Hall
• 6 Philharmonia Sessions – free and for everyone – including a Family Concert and Orchestra Unwrapped concert for schools.

As we recover from the pandemic, return to the world stage and welcome back our audiences we need your help to be an Orchestra for everyone.
