English Northern Philharmonia

The English Northern Philharmonia is the resident orchestra of Opera North and since its formation in 1978 has established itself as one of the UK's leading operatic orchestras. In addition to playing for all the Company's performances, the ENP enjoys an independent existence as a symphony orchestra, giving concerts throughout Yorkshire and the surrounding area.

The ENP has appeared with numerous international guest conductors and soloists, as well as with David Lloyd-Jones, its Founder Conductor, and Paul Daniel who was Opera North's Music Director and Principal Conductor of the ENP from 1990 to 1997. The orchestra is an important contributor to all the major concert series in the Yorkshire region and has also made visits abroad, not only with Opera North, but also in its capacity as a symphony orchestra.

The ENP offers a range of programmes covering the entire orchestral repertoire, ranging from a Mozart-sized orchestra to a full symphony orchestra, and has given particular attention to British music, both operatic and orchestral. It has gained considerable acclaim for its operatic gala concerts with singers of international status. The Orchestra has a strong commitment to educational and community work, and is involved with several schools-based projects both in Leeds and further afield.

The ENP has become increasingly well known in the recording studio, with releases for Chandos, Deutsche Grammophon, Naxos, WMI, Hyperion and Collins Classics.
