CSO Proof

A new way to experience the CSO. Artists and audience share the same space on the stage of Music Hall in shorter, intermission-less performances that are casual, intimate and boundary-breaking. Each concert is a fresh collaboration with artists working across genres, featuring elements of theatre, lighting and dance. Leave your expectations at the door. We are all newcomers at CSO Proof. 

Tickets are $25, all fees included. Single tickets are on sale now!
