We are home to eight orchestras, who give around 100 concerts here each year
Among the best orchestras in the world are our four Resident Orchestras: the London Philharmonic Orchestra, the Philharmonia Orchestra, the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and the London Sinfonietta.
They welcome new listeners alongside passionate fans to experience centuries of extraordinary music, from the Baroque to the brand new.
