Following its role in the Coronation Service last Saturday, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (RPO) is excited to announce details of its 2023/24 season of UK concerts. With reports that 2.5 billion people worldwide tuned into the coronation on television or online, the positive reaction to the coronation music aligns with signs of resurgent interest in orchestral music across the UK.The season will present orchestral music in its broadest sense – maximising the range of entry points into the genre, part of the RPO’s mission to ensure that orchestral performances can be fully inclusive.

Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall: 

Music Director Vasily Petrenko will present ‘Icons Rediscovered’a series of five concerts that will offer fresh interpretations of iconic masterpieces.

Royal Albert Hall:

The RPO will present a series of large scale, dramatic concerts, as part of the ‘Icons Rediscovered’ series including  Verdi’s epic Requiem and an evening of Wagner.

Cadogan Hall:

The RPO will continue in its mission to provide a platform for the world’s brightest up-and-coming musical stars, with debut performances from conductors including Olivia Clarke, Emilia Hoving, Leslie Suganandarajah and Nil Venditti. 

St Paul’s Cathedral:

The Orchestra’s biennial concert with composer/conductor John Rutter (who arranged a number of the works performed at the coronation).

UK Regional Venues:

RPO will continue its mission to give more people local access to the live orchestral experience with performances across the country, including Northampton, Nottingham, Guildford and Sunderland.

The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra was proud and honoured to play a key role in the Coronation Service for His Majesty King Charles III and this new season of orchestral concerts will continue to shine a spotlight on Britain’s orchestral heritage.
