The London Philharmonic Orchestra is celebrated as one of the world’s great orchestras.

Meet the London Philharmonic Orchestra

Uniquely groundbreaking and exhilarating to watch and hear, the London Philharmonic Orchestra has been celebrated as one of the world’s great orchestras since Sir Thomas Beecham founded it in 1932. With every performance, they aim to bring wonder to the modern world and cement their position as a leading orchestra for the 21st century. 

With its home at London’s Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall, the LPO is the beating heart of London’s cultural life. You’ll also find them each summer at Glyndebourne Festival Opera, or at one of their resident venues in Brighton, Eastbourne or Saffron Walden.  You may have heard the LPO on  TV, radio and video games, and you’ll almost certainly have heard them on the soundtracks for films like The Lord of the Rings. They also release recordings on their own label, which is growing all the time.

The LPO’s Principal Conductors have included some of the greatest historic names like Sir Adrian Boult, Bernard Haitink, Sir Georg Solti, Klaus Tennstedt and Kurt Masur. In 2021 Edward Gardner became LPO’s 13th Principal Conductor, and Vladimir Jurowski became Conductor Emeritus in recognition of his impact as Principal Conductor from 2007–21. Karina Canellakis is the current Principal Guest Conductor and Brett Dean their Composer-in-Residence.

As one of Marquee TV’s exclusive partners, you can watch incredible concerts from the LPO anytime on Marquee TV.
