Friends of the Philharmonia Orchestra

From just £35 a year, Friends enjoy a variety of benefits in return for their support, that give them exclusive access to the orchestra and its musicians. Find out more about becoming a Friend of the Philharmonia with first violinist Nathaniel Anderson-Frank.

The Friends of the Philharmonia play a vital role in the life of the Orchestra, not only supporting the Philharmonia’s extensive concert and touring schedule but also its ground-breaking education work and award winning digital projects. Some of the many achievements of the Orchestra that have been made possible through the support of the Friends are highlighted in our annual members’ newsletter A Year in Review.

In thanks for their support, the Friends receive a host of opportunities that provide them with greater access to the Orchestra and its players. We offer several membership levels and a number of exclusive benefits relevant to three of the Philharmonia Orchestra's residencies around the UK. Find out more about the benefits offered by our Friends schemes in London, Bedford and Leicester.
