Aside from the concerts, the residency involves the Orchestra being a valued part of music making in the area. Our work with people of all ages and backgrounds through the advent of workshops and concerts for children is fundamental to the Orchestra's mission. The Hear and Now project provides a snapshot of the work that goes on.
A season with so many performances enables local audience members a real opportunity to get to know and support the Orchestra. A central body of support, that would not be possible in other venues, exists as the Friends of the Philharmonia in Bedford.
