Offering insights into the Orchestra and its performers and repertoire, pre-concert talks are available prior to many of our concerts across the country, giving audiences the chance to meet conductors, soloists and Philharmonia Orchestra musicians, or to explore the music with expert speakers. In London, a programme of live music pre-concert events is presented in addition to talks and discussions.

The Philharmonia website also has a wealth of online audio and video resource material covering musicians, repertoire, composers and instruments which can be found here:

Insight talks and events

Pre-concert Insight talks take place in nearly all our Residency venues as well as other concert locations.

In addition to the pre-concert talks, the Philharmonia will often curate specialist Insight events that explore some of the Orchestra’s flagship concert series in more depth. Find out more about upcoming events in your area.
