: “We are honoured and delighted to have His Majesty King Charles III support as our Patron at such an exciting time in the Orchestra’s evolution. Performing approximately 200 concerts each season and with a worldwide live and online audience in excess of 60 million people, the RPO acts as a cultural ambassador for the UK on the world stage and enhances the social and cultural fabric of local communities at home through a wide range of community, education, inclusion and wellbeing programmes. His Majesty is a life-long champion of culture in the UK and we share the same vision on the positive contribution that orchestral music can and will play in enriching and unifying our society.”
