Working with the Royal Philharmonic Society

Our collaboration with the Royal Philharmonic Society (RPS) focusses on helping musicians develop the skills necessary to build sustainable careers and inspire musical achievement in the next generation.

Our partnership supports the delivery of their Women Conductors initiative, a series of workshops for women at different stages of their career, from school-age to professional.

We also support the RPS Young Composers Programme. Composition is a core part of both RPS and ABRSM activity, and as a commissioning body and publisher, we value skilled composers and recognise the challenges of building a career in composition.

Previously, we've sponsored their Learning & Participation Award and their Barbirolli Fund, which provides musical instruments for students entering music college.
