About

Liverpool Philharmonic is one of the world’s oldest concert societies, encompassing the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, Liverpool Philharmonic Hall, Music Room & award-winning music education programmes.

The Liverpool Philharmonic Hall is an art-deco style Grade II listed building located on Liverpool's well-known and well-loved Hope Street within the city's Georgian Quarter. 

In 1840, a group of Liverpool music lovers founded The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic. It is one of the world's oldest concert societies with the award-winning Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra at the heart of it along with its associated ensembles and concert series; the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Choir; Liverpool Philharmonic Youth Company and Children's Choirs. 

The Orchestra has a dynamic musical partnership with it's Russian Chief Conductor, Vasily Petrenko, hosting concerts in Liverpool, across the UK and all over the world. 

In 2020 it was announced that Domingo Hindoyan will replace Petrenko in September 2021. Hindoyan builds on the legacy of Vasily Petrenko who will step down after 15 years and who will then assume the role of Conductor Laureate.

But the 60 orchestral concerts a year is not all that takes place at 'the Phil', a wide range of classical, contemporary and roots music, rock, pop and folk music, an amazing unique cinema experience and a top stand-up comedy line-up also take to the stage. 

In 2015, a refurbishment was completed, adding a new more intimate venue, Music Room. The Music Room hosts a wide range of concerts and events, complimenting the main Hall's programme. The space is designed to let audiences get closer to the music.
