CBSO Concert Season 16/17

The CBSO 2016-17 Concert Season - the first with their Osborn Music Director Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla is now playing at Town Hall & Symphony Hall, Birmingham, it marks a new and exciting chapter in their history.

As well as all of the sensational symphonies and world-class concerto soloists you'd expect from a CBSO season, this year the Orchestra is looking forward to concerts that celebrate The Spirit of England, a host of operatic and choral classics - a particular highlight for Mirga - and music from the years 1916-17 as part of their CBSO:2020 centenary countdown.

They are delighted to welcome Steven Osborne as their new Artist-in-Residence too, as well as more fabulous Friday Night Classics, fun-filled family concerts and a whole series of brilliant chamber concerts at their rehearsal home, CBSO Centre.



Public booking is now open for the 2016-17 Concert Season.
