No recording can match the experience of hearing music played live, especially when it is played by a large orchestra. The RSO aims to spread the joy of music and generate interest in the new. By helping them experience music of the very highest quality, we hope to motivate children, teenagers and young adults to play music themselves and to show them the vitality and energy an orchestra possesses.
