Education Fund

The Philharmonia's Education Programme is at the heart of the Orchestra’s work, providing many exciting and innovative ways for children and adults to engage with orchestral music.

Working in partnership with Music Hubs, schools, and local community groups all over the UK, we are able to educate and inspire thousands of people every year; through school projects, such as Orchestra Unwrapped; community initiatives, such as Hear and Now; and a variety of study days, workshops, and master classes.

These projects would not be possible without the contributions towards the Education Fund that we receive from both Trusts and generous individuals. Your donation, however large or small, is of great value not only to the Orchestra, but also to the schools, community groups and individuals that we work with.

If you would like to make an online donation to the Philharmonia's Education Fund, please visit the Donate Now page.  For more information on making a donation to the Education Fund, or about supporting a particular Education project, please contact the Development team at or on 020 7921 3903.
