English Northern Philharmonia

Since its formation in 1978 the English Northern Philharmonia, the resident orchestra of Opera North, has established itself as one of the country’s leading ensembles both in the pit and on the concert platform. It has appeared with numerous international guest conductors and soloists, as well as with David Lloyd-Jones, its founder-conductor, Paul Daniel who was Opera North’s music director and principal conductor of the orchestra from 1990–1997, and with Steven Sloane, gave concerts throughout the UK, and has also made several visits abroad, not only with Opera North but also independently as a symphony orchestra.

The orchestra has a strong commitment to educational and community work and is involved with several school-based projects both in Leeds and further afield. Its Student Training Scheme, initiated in 1983, which gives full-time music students in Yorkshire the opportunity to play with the orchestra for certain rehearsals, is still the only one of its type in the country. 1993 saw the launch of the orchestra’s New Composers Forum, aimed at giving young composers an opportunity to hear their works rehearsed and performed by a professional orchestra, and it collaborates with Leeds Leisure Services in organising the Leeds Conductors Competition which has done much to launch the careers of young British conductors.
