While the Canberra Symphony Orchestra receives some grant funding from government, we rely on philanthropic support to bring our artistic vision to life.

The CSO appreciates general donations that allow us to direct funds where they are most needed. If you would like to know more about CSO artistic and community programs or engage with us in an ongoing way – financially or as a volunteer – please contact us at

Subscriptions and concert attendance are also vital avenues of support for the CSO.

Australian stories

The CSO is a national leader in programming Australian compositions. We believe classical music is just as thrilling and relevant today as it was in centuries past, a powerful art form for telling Australian stories and tackling contemporary issues. We invite you to partner with us as we support Australian artists, and champion classical music in Australian cultural life.
