The Friends of the Philharmonia Orchestra receive many benefits of membership including priority booking, access to open rehearsals, regular Orchestra updates, and bespoke special events.
Above all the greatest benefit our members receive is the knowledge that their contributions, however large or small, perpetuate the great tradition of the Philharmonia Orchestra as a musical icon in Britain and throughout the world. By enabling valuable work in education as well as supporting the Orchestra’s core musical programme, the Bedford Friends of the Philharmonia have helped sustain the success of the Philharmonia as Resident Orchestra at the Bedford Corn Exchange.
