For more than seven decades the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (RPO) has been at the forefront of music-making in the UK and internationally. Discover the breadth of the Orchestra's performance activities through this interactive exhibit.
Principal Associate Conductor Alexander Shelley's themed concerts are a staple of our Cadogan season. Past highlights have included 'Symphonic Soundscapes' and 'Myths and Fairytales'.
Phenomenal violinist and conductor Pinchas Zukerman (Principal Guest Conductor) plays host to the RPO's biennial Summer Music Festival: an exceptional series of orchestral and chamber concerts.
The Hall also hosts some of the world's most esteemed soloists, including Jennifer Pike, Mark Bebbington, Yi-Jia Susanne Hou, and the RPO's first Artist-in-Residence, Esther Yoo.
The auditorium is even more impressive at full capacity! Here we can see the RPO's annual Christmas concert with choral composer, John Rutter.
The Royal Albert Hall also hosts the RPO's ABBAphonic, Symphonic Queen and new Symphonic Pop Concerts, in which we present popular music with a symphonic twist, alongside dazzling light shows.
Recently, the Hall has hosted the RPO's Film and Video Game music concerts - here are a few clips from the immensely popular Symphonic Star Wars.
