Welcome to the Brighton Philharmonic Orchestra

Welcome to the website of the Brighton Philharmonic, Brighton & Hove’s professional orchestra, which performs an annual season of Sunday afternoon concerts at Brighton Dome along with a hugely popular New Year’s Eve Viennese Gala. We hope that it answers all your questions about who we are and what we do.

Tickets for our current season are on sale from Brighton Dome Ticket Office in person, by telephone (01273) 709709 and online: www.brightondome.org.

The Brighton Phil’s first concert of 2018 on Sunday 28 January is conducted by world-renowned clarinetist Michael Collins who presents a concert of wonderful music by Haydn, Mozart & Beethoven. (Those of you with long memories may remember Michael winning the woodwind prize in the very first Young Musician of the Year in 1978, at the tender age of 16.)

Tickets are on sale through Brighton Dome Ticket Office. Friends of the Phil enjoy priority booking as one of the benefits of membership. For more details on this and other benefits, and how to become a Friend of the Phil, please see: http://www.brightonphil.org.uk/friends-of-philharmonic/


Our 2017/18 Concert Season brochure with full details of all our concerts is available from Brighton Dome, the BPO office and various locations around the city, including Visit Brighton Information Points at Churchill Square, the Royal Pavilion, Jubilee Library and Brighton Station.

Look out for the distinctive cover design (where the starling murmuration over the West Pier has been replaced by musical notes).

Your Orchestra needs you

YourOrchestraNeedsYouImageWe are enormously grateful to all those Friends and supporters whose sponsorship made our last season possible.

We are still seeking some sponsorship for the second half of our current concert season at Brighton Dome, details of which can be found above.

Ticket sales for our concerts, however good, make up less than 50% of our income and in order to present such exciting programmes the Society needs to raise sufficient sponsorship to make up the difference. There are opportunities to sponsor an orchestral chair position, a specific concert or simply to contribute to the concert season as a whole, as an individual or joining with others as part of a consortium.

For further details about all forms of sponsorship please contact the BPO on: (01273) 622900 or email: nicolaschisholm @ brightonphil.org.uk
