In the Community

CSO has developed a multifaceted programme of community engagement initiatives that have each been designed to enrich and strengthen our community.

In September...

Christchurch Symphony Orchestra will be welcoming more than 4000 students into the Christchurch Town Hall for Symphony with Suzy, a free concert for schools that traverses the breadth and width of orchestral music, on Friday 9 September. Through music ranging from Mozart's Le Nozze di Figaro to modern hits like music from Disney's Frozen and Pirates of the Caribbean franchises, ākonga will experience the wonder that a full symphony orchestra can bring. The morning session is full but we are welcoming registrations from schools for the afternon session starting at 12pm.
