From the CEO


Rachel Thomas
Acting Chief Executive Officer

I love this time of year in Canberra, as I am sure many of you do. As the warm evenings approach their end in coming weeks, we joyously start our 2019 season with Music by the River in Queanbeyan and Symphony in the Park a free concert courtesy of the ACT Government as part of the Enlighten Festival—welcoming Kirsten Williams to the stage as CSO Concert Master for 2019.

It is my pleasure to announce that Jessica Cottis will join the CSO for a second concert in 2019, to conduct the CSO Opera Gala. Jessica brings with her depth, creativity and wisdom to this significant and diverse program which was programmed by Richard Gill AO before his passing. This concert will be a fitting tribute to a great man who was dear to so many.

I look forward to sharing inspiring musical experiences with you in 2019, where every musician, every instrument and every piece of music has a story that brings heart and soul to our performances.

Rachel Thomas
Acting Chief Executive Officer
