ROYAL LIVERPOOL PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA
The award-winning Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra is the UK’s oldest surviving professional symphony orchestra and has been at the heart of Liverpool’s cultural life since 1840.
The Orchestra gives approximately 70 concerts each season (September – June) in its home, Liverpool Philharmonic Hall, as well as concerts in venues across the city, including Liverpool’s two cathedrals. Chief Conductor, Vasily Petrenko, joined in 2006 and is recognised as one of the exceptional musicians of his generation.
In recent years the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra has proven a big hit at Summer Jam performing alongside Ian Broudie and the Lightning Seeds and Echo and The Bunnymen.
