Christchurch Symphony Orchestra

Performer, Commissioner, Performing Organisation


Recognised nationally, and celebrated locally, for the depth of its work, the CSO believes that music can enrich lives in different ways and aims to share these experiences with as many people as possible through providing a wide range of ways in which our audiences can discover, encounter, and enjoy great musical experiences.

The orchestra contributes to the cultural diversity of the community through a full and varied concert season, as the orchestra of choice for many touring artists and other arts organisations, including the Royal New Zealand Ballet, and through its extensive Community Engagement programme, including school residencies, collaborations with other organisations such as Jolt Dance, library and retirement village performances, and at civic events.

Championing New Zealand composers and artists is hugely important to the CSO and it has, for many years, showcased, commissioned and premiered New Zealand works and performed with the best of New Zealand talent.
