Luke Ritchie is Head of Innovation & Partnerships at the Philharmonia Orchestra. The Orchestra has had a dedicated Digital department for nearly a decade, using technology to connect with a growing audience beyond the traditional Concert Hall, creating new artistic experiences that allow you to step inside the Orchestra.

Under the artistic leadership of Principal Conductor Esa-Pekka Salonen, the Digital team has created a range of cutting-edge projects, from iPad apps to interactive web documentaries, from its large-scale installations to touring musical trucks, from its extensive video collection through to Virtual Reality. It began working in VR in early 2015 and has created three films to date. 

The Philharmonia Orchestra is a world-class symphony orchestra for the 21st century, led by Principal Conductor & Artistic Advisor Esa-Pekka Salonen. 

The Orchestra’s home is Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall, London, where it presents over 50 performances each year. Six other residencies across the UK bring the Philharmonia to a wide national audience. Internationally, the Philharmonia is active across Europe, Asia and the USA.
