American Friends

The Orchestra appears in the United States every eighteen months. We enjoy a close relationship with New York, where we regularly perform at both Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall. We also travel further afield in the US, bringing the music of the London Philharmonic Orchestra to a wide range of American cities.

Support opportunity

AFLPO supports our visits as well as inspiring education activity with emerging American musicians. Its regular Young Artist Series offers opportunities for rising stars to perform at Manhattan's most exclusive private addresses. On our last two visits to New York members of the Orchestra have offered coaching to young instrumentalists at the InterSchool Orchestras of New York and La Guardia High School for Music & Art and the Performing Arts.

Enjoy the Benefits

Members of AFLPO enjoy opportunities to attend Young Artist Series recitals, benefit concerts with major artists and priority booking for the London Philharmonic Orchestra's concerts in New York. We encourage our members to become involved in the Orchestra's life in the UK and to come and hear us at the Royal Festival Hall and Glyndebourne, and to attend special events such as our Annual Gala.
