Equally at home on the concert platform as in the recording studio, this world-class ensemble is committed to sharing its enthusiasm and creative expertise through its nationwide outreach programme.
The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra is a leading international symphony orchestra which enjoys a residency at local venue The Hexagon in Reading.
The Orchestra also runs an award-winning community and education programme RPO resound which marked its 20th anniversary last year. Using music as a powerful and inspirational tool, RPO resound is delivered by specially trained musicians and leaders from the Orchestra and enables greater access to and engagement with world-class music-making in the wider community – from homeless shelters to hospices, youth clubs to prisons and from early years to higher education.
Southern Sinfonia is a professional chamber orchestra and much, much more.
Based in rural Berkshire, they play a diverse and exciting repertoire and present world-class performances of the highest quality across the South, all year round. Committed to musical excellence, they are one of the most distinctive chamber ensembles currently operating in the UK
