The Philharmonia Orchestra is a registered charity (number 250277). Even with record ticket sales and Arts Council subsidy, the Philharmonia still needs to raise an additional £2m per year to perform concerts of the highest calibre with the world’s top conductors and soloists. Donations of any size are very welcome and will have a direct impact upon our work.

What your donation could mean to us:

£5 allows one young person to spend an hour working to create a personal response to The Planets in dance, animation or through composition. Find out more on the iOrchestra website.

£10 pays for three children to attend an age-appropriate Orchestra Unwrapped concert in Leicester. 

£25 provides tea and biscuits for 50 young people and 50 older people living with dementia for a weekend creative project in Bedford, Hear and Now 

£50 pays the hire fee of a Marimba for a performance in our Music of Today series.
