The RLPO is at the heart of Liverpool's cultural life. It has links with legendary conductors - and was the first UK orchestra to enter into a ground-breaking partnership with Classic FM.
In 1958 the Society instigated a competition for young conductors. The first winner was the young Indian conductor, Zubin Mehta. He was subsequently appointed assistant conductor of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic. Mehta soon rose to the rank of chief conductor when he was made Music Director of the Montreal Symphony Orchestra in 1960, a post he held until 1967.
