Liverpool Philharmonic, one of the UK’s most forward-looking music organisations.

Learning at Liverpool Philharmonic

Liverpool Philharmonic has been working with schools and the community since the 1940s, when Sir Malcolm Sargent and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra first introduced a concert series for schools.

Our Learning programme now offers a range of exciting and inspirational opportunities to get involved in live music-making of the highest quality for thousands of people every year across classical music and increasingly through other musical genres reflecting our diverse artistic programme at Liverpool Philharmonic. Activities are led by musicians from the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and our expert team of professional music leaders.

We provide activities for people of all ages at Liverpool Philharmonic Hall, Liverpool Philharmonic at the Friary (in West Everton) and throughout Liverpool City Region and the North West in children’s centres, schools, colleges, hospitals, community health settings, universities and conservatoires and community settings.

In 2013/14, we delivered 3,520 music workshops bringing music to children, adults and families, and engaged 260 primary, secondary, special schools and children’s centres through our live concerts and projects. Current major projects include our annual schools’ concerts for over 20,000 children, leadership of In Harmony Liverpool, the El Sistema-inspired music and social programme, and our Musician in Residence programme with Mersey Care NHS Trust.
