Registered Charity No: 250277 (England & Wales).

The Philharmonia Orchestra is one of the world’s great orchestras. Acknowledged as the UK’s foremost musical pioneer, with an extraordinary recording legacy, the Philharmonia leads the field for its quality of playing, and for its innovative approach to audience development, residencies, music education and the use of new technologies in reaching a global audience. Together with its relationships with the world’s most sought after artists, most importantly its Principal Conductor and Artistic Advisor Esa- Pekka Salonen, the Philharmonia Orchestra is at the heart of British musical life.

In 2016/17, the Orchestra will perform more than 140 concerts and reaching over 10,000 young people through its music education programmes and creative digital work. Legacies enable this work to happen. With the support of Arts Council England and significant private fundraising, the Philharmonia is able to sell its concert tickets at a range of accessible prices, but legacy income is vital in ensuring that both our education and artistic programme can continue.

A gift in your Will ensures this work can continue and the Orchestra’s music can continue to be enjoyed by future generations.
