Our 2020 season is brimming with virtuosity, creativity and energy. It features outstanding music and musicians from New Zealand and abroad to savour in the near perfect acoustics of our world-class Douglas Lilburn Auditorium.
The Masterworks series consists of seven concerts that explore the riches of the symphonic repertoire, both existing and new, the familiar and unfamiliar.
CSO Presents is a series of five concerts encompassing music from the Hollywood blockbusters to the best of New Zealand rock and pop. Full of family fun, rousing anthems and awe-inspiring feats.
This series is presented in the Ron Ball Studio situated in the CSO’s new home within the Town Hall. Celebrating the talents of the musicians of the orchestra, each one hour programme is carefully curated to explore the different sounds of an orchestra in an up-close and intimate setting.
Throughout the year the CSO includes a number of special events within our calendar. This can include fundraising and one-off events.
