CSO Proof

This is a new way to experience the CSO. Artists and audience share the same space in shorter, casual, intermission-less performances featuring elements of theater, lighting and dance.

Each concert offers a fresh collaboration with different artists, who each craft a theme that connects orchestral music to listeners with new dimensions of color.
