The Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra was founded in 1918. Lahav Shani is chief conductor since the 2018-2019 season. Valery Gergiev and Yannick Nézet-Séguin are honorary conductors of the orchestra.

The orchestra’s ambition is to bring symphonic music to as broad a public as possible. In addition, the orchestra focuses on adventurous and innovative projects. The orchestra is based in Rotterdam.
