Who are the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra?

Now in its eighth decade, the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra is a much loved cultural institution and a ‘source of pride’ to 87% of Tasmanians, according to a recent survey. In addition to performing to its substantial subscriber audiences in Hobart and Launceston, the TSO reaches a broad cross-section of listeners in both cities with free outdoor concerts, performs in regional Tasmania, attracts newcomers to classical music with its Live Sessions concerts, performs in schools and community centres, and collaborates with Mona Foma, Dark Mofo, Victorian Opera and the Australian National Academy of Music, among other organisations. Interstate touring in recent years has taken the orchestra to Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth. In December 2016-January 2017 the TSO made a highly successful tour of the Chinese provinces of Jiangsu, Fujian and Shanghai, giving nine concerts in seven cities.
