Due to persistent inclement weather and associated risks, the CSO has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 Summer Prom – ticket holders have been contacted directly. More info

The CSO thanks the Canberra community for its strong support for this event – we hope to see you at concerts in 2022.

Held in the stunning grounds of Government House, the CSO Summer Prom is an annual highlight on Canberra’s musical calendar. This year, the CSO will present a varied program of cherished classics and Christmas arrangements: works by Mozart, Dvořák, Johann Strauss and Vaughan Williams as well as ‘Carol of the Birds’, ‘Joy to the World’ and other festive favourites.

Pack a picnic – or visit a range of local vendors – and enjoy a quintessentially Canberran summer evening with family and friends.
