Luxury appliance marque LG Signature has been named international corporate partner of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, which celebrates its 75th anniversary in September this year. 

For its milestone year, the RPO is also welcoming HRH the Prince of Wales as its new patron, and esteemed Russian conductor, Vasily Petrenko, who joins as its new music director. 

Petrenko will join a roster of titled conductors that includes Pinchas Zukerman (Principal Guest Conductor), Alexander Shelley (Principal Associate Conductor) and Grzegorz Nowak (Permanent Associate Conductor).

The partnership is an appropriate one for LG Signature, which has forged an identity based on premium design and performance. The brand’s mission statement is to provide a state-of-the-art living experience that feels ‘pure, sophisticated and luxurious’.

As a corporate partner, LG Signature will be the major sponsor of the RPO’s upcoming season. Intriguingly, it will also be offering its customers exclusive RPO digital content, and providing VIP hosting at select performances and programme branding events, as part of the 2021-2022 schedule. 

The company has also signed Vasily Petrenko as its latest global brand ambassador.
