The BBC Philharmonic is acknowledged as one of the UK's finest orchestras. It is part of the BBC's family of six performing groups, and from its new home in Salford it tours widely in the UK and internationally. Most concerts are broadcast live or recorded for BBC Radio 3.

The BBC Philharmonic was founded in 1934 as the BBC Northern Orchestra, and changed its name to the BBC Philharmonic in 1982. It has recently moved from Manchester to nearby MediaCityUK in Salford Quays, joining other programme departments at the BBC's new Northern base. Its main concert series will continue at The Bridgewater Hall in Manchester.

The BBC Philharmonic has made over 200 recordings with Chandos Records. Recent awards include Melvyn Bragg's South Bank Sky Arts Award for Classical Music, for the BBC Philharmonic's joint performance of Mahler's Eighth Symphony, part of the city-wide Mahler Festival in 2010.

The BBC Philharmonic is supported by Salford City Council, enabling the orchestra to build active links in the area through a busy learning and community programme.
