The Philamonic Orchestra
“The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra is one of the oldest concert-giving organisations in the world, and the second oldest in Britain. The origins of its concert series date back to the formation of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Society, which administers it, in 1840. The Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, as it was called then, acquired the title ‘Royal’ in 1957. In 1989 the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Society and Orchestra received an Honorary Fellowship from the Liverpool John Moores University and in 1991 were the first organisations to be granted the freedom of the City of Liverpool. A further honour of Meritorious Service was granted by the City of Liverpool in 1997.
The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra gives over sixty concerts from September to June in the bright, pleasant ambience and excellent acoustic of Philharmonic Hall, as well as presenting a regular concert series at Preston Guild Hall and Blackburn King George’s Hall, and making frequent appearances in concert halls throughout the United Kingdom and abroad.”- (http://www.liverpoolphil.com/content/abouttheorchestra.aspx)
