City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra
Berkley Street, Birmingham, B1 2LF
The CBSO is an internationally-renowned orchestra and Resident Orchestra at Symphony Hall. It plays over 130 concerts each year, as well as operating four choirs and a diverse education programme.
Elgar conducted their first symphonic concert in 1920, but the CBSO came to international prominence in 1980, appointing Simon Rattle as principal conductor. The position has since been held by some of the world's best conductors - Sakari Oramo, Andris Nelsons and, most recently, Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla.
Each CBSO season includes classic symphonies, grand operas and new music, plus popular Friday Nights and family concerts suitable for all ages and tastes.
CBSO Centre, the Orchestra's city centre home, is available to hire as a flexible conference and events venue. Facilities include meeting rooms, studios and a well-equipped 300-seat auditorium. Learn more: cbso.co.uk/centre
