Liverpool Philharmonic Announces ‘Live from Liverpool Philharmonic Hall’ Digital Programmes
Enjoy live concert video and recordings in the comfort of your home
Liverpool Philharmonic Hall is currently closed following government advice about the coronavirus situation, but that doesn’t mean the music has stopped.
Engagement on social media has increased significantly – with a reach on Facebook last week of over 766,000 people. In the period of closure, we’ve had 313,000 video views, reaching more people than we would in an entire orchestral season in Liverpool. Over 4,500 new followers have joined us on Facebook in the last few weeks, more than we’d typically get in an entire year, bringing total followers to over 51,000.
A full programme of activity is now available to watch and listen to from the comfort of your living room!
Digital Programme Schedule
Each Tuesday night at 7.30pm enjoy videos from contemporary artists who regularly perform at the Hall. Don’t miss The Real Thing, Irish Sea Sessions and Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark introduced by the artists themselves where possible.
Thursday nights at 7.30pm and Sunday afternoons at 2.30pm showcase video from our archives of past performances by the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, as well as chamber music concerts by musicians from the Orchestra. Audiences can watch these streams at the same time with fellow music lovers around the world, and join in the conversation!
We’ll soon be announcing a programme which will showcase members of our Youth Company and musicians in our community on our Facebook page.
Visit our Spotify page where we will be posting playlists specially curated by artists we work with. Chief Conductor Vasily Petrenko has put together a playlist to reflect the troubled times we find ourselves in right now - click here to listen.

In addition, Chief Conductor Vasily Petrenko will appear on Scala Radio (https://planetradio.co.uk/scala-radio/schedule/) on Sunday 3 May from 8 – 10 pm in a programme featuring works by Grieg, Mahler, and Bach with Presenter Darren Redick. He comments on life as a conductor in these times as well as on these never previously released recordings of live concert material from Liverpool Philharmonic Hall.
Our ground-breaking music education programme, In Harmony Liverpool, will continue to engage over 1,200 children across Everton and Anfield in music by working with our partner schools to create and distribute digital In Harmony curriculum resources for use at home.
