Jobs At The CSO

From The New York Times to BBC Music Magazine, Cincinnati’s vibrant arts and culture scene is capturing the attention of the world.

Comprised of some of the world’s finest musicians, the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra aims to fulfill its mission: to seek and share inspiration. The CSO is a cornerstone of the region's vibrant arts and culture scene, and has achieved international critical acclaim and an operating budget that consistently places it among America’s top ten orchestras.

Diversity and Inclusion in Action:
The CSO's commitment to inclusion is fundamental to who we are as an organization. Reflecting our community and the world around at every level—on stage, behind-the-scenes and in neighborhoods throughout the region—is essential to the CSO’s present and future and makes us a stronger ensemble and institution.

This commitment is reinforced through groundbreaking initiatives, including the CSO/CCM Diversity Fellowship and Nouveau Pre-Conservatory programs. These are part of an ongoing effort to help change the face of American orchestras by providing guidance, training and tools to musicians from underrepresented communities. We encourage and welcome underrepresented candidates to apply.
