The Canberra Symphony Orchestra engages and enriches a broad audience through artistically vibrant musical experiences.
The CSO embraces bold, relevant artistic content and champions Australian voices and stories, through the dedicated Australian Series and on the mainstage. The CSO collaborates with national cultural institutions, ACT arts organisations, the Australian National University’s School of Music and across sectors to ensure classical and art music thrive in the Canberra region alongside other art forms.
The orchestra is a vibrant presence in the local community, generating impact beyond the concert hall. The CSO delivers a growing suite of innovative programs that demonstrate the value of the arts in every facet of daily life, from education to community engagement, health and wellbeing.
