Music is a magical thing. It makes us laugh, makes us cry, evokes memories from long ago, and expresses that which cannot be defined with words alone. It is for these reasons, and many more, that the love of music is inherent in humanity.
The Canberra Symphony Orchestra ensures that everyone can share in the joy of music through its Community and Regional Engagement programs. Connections are made and stories revealed through the program. Throughout the year, CSO ensembles perform over 65 free concerts in specialist education centres, aged care facilities, community centres, the National Botanic Gardens and the Canberra Hospital.
Recognising the power of music to improve social, emotional and physical wellbeing, the CSO is committed to providing programs that are inclusive and accessible to people who might not otherwise attend a concert in Llewellyn Hall. The response is a wonderful reminder that the CSO Community and Regional Engagement programs are just as important as the sell-out performances we put on stage.
CSO Community and Regional Engagement activities are supported by the ACT Government.
