City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra

The City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra is the beating heart of classical music in the community.

The City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra

The City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra offers a wide variety of orchestral performances aimed at attracting a broad range of audiences. Friday nights are reserved for a more lighthearted classical repertoire. The Orchestra puts on smaller chamber music concerts at the CBSO Centre while the major music events take place in the adjacent Symphony Hall which opened in 1991. Under the direction of Finnish conductor Sakari Oramo and later Latvian-born Andris Nelsons, the CBSO continued to gain international acclaim and tours throughout much of Europe.

The current music director Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla plans to focus on works from Mozart to contemporary composers. The orchestra also sponsors a variety of free shows and classes for schoolchildren and young musicians.
