FRIENDS

Get closer to one of the world's great orchestras


Join the Friends of the Philharmonia Orchestra and become part of our most loyal group of supporters. Founded in 1982, our Friends have championed our work and empowered us to achieve our artistic ambitions.

Diminishing public funding means we are ever more reliant on the generous contributions of our Friends, who play their part in every world-class artist we engage, every child we inspire, and every digital innovation we create.

In recognition of your support you can have access to more than just concerts. You can meet Philharmonia musicians, hear top level conductors craft a performance in rehersal, and take advantage of priority booking to choose your favourite seats.

And your support makes a real difference.

Whatever you can afford to give, get closer to the Philharmonia Orchestra by becoming a Friend.
