Contemporaries

Love classical music and want to get more involved with London's cultural scene? Contemporaries is for you!

Contemporaries

Contemporaries is the London Philharmonic Orchestra's exciting membership scheme for young professionals. Enjoy London's finest Orchestra through our vibrant social events and concerts.

With membership starting at just £90 a year, Contemporaries is a great way to get closer to the Orchestra and meet like minded people - all you need to do is sign up, put the dates in your diary and leave the arrangements to us. We pick out three 'must see' concerts each season, called the Subscription Series, and the tickets are even included in your membership so you won't miss out on seeing some of the Orchestra's best performances! We also hold a whole range of other exciting events for you to attend from exclusive champagne and canapé evenings at luxury partner organisations to the annual Christmas Party.

There are three membership levels to choose from and the option for it to be a single or double membership.

Please note that 2015/16 Subscription Series concert dates are: 28 October 2015, 3 February 2016 and 23 April 2016. Memberships purchased up to 28 October 2015 will be  valid through to 31 August 2016. If you would like to join after the first concert or further into the season reduced subscription rates are available for all levels as outlined below.
