    The Stichting Omroep Muziek (SOM) facilitates the concert series and the ensembles of the Netherlands Public Broadcasting (NPO): the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra (Radio Filharmonisch Orkest) chief-conductor Karina Canellakis and the Netherlands Radio Choir (het Groot Omroepkoor) chief-conductor Benjamin Goodson.The orchestra plays a prominent role in the concert series of the NPO, such as the “NTR ZaterdagMatinee”, “AVROTROS Vrijdagconcert” and “Het Zondagochtend Concert”, where the orchestra performs great orchestral symphonic works from the Romantic era to the present day.

    The Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra has established a prominent place in Dutch musical life since its foundation in 1945. Together with the Netherlands Radio Choir, the orchestra received the Concertgebouw Prize in September 2017, emphasizing the quality of both ensembles once again.

    In the Dutch music scene, the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra distinguishes itself through specially programmed symphonic concerts and has also distinguished itself remarkably with concertante opera performances and Dutch music. First performances in the Netherlands and world premieres are an important part of the repertory. A number of performances - often world premieres - have been released on CD.
