Welcome

The City of Cambridge Symphony Orchestra (CCSO) performs six concerts a year at the University Concert Hall in West Road, Cambridge and is conducted by Musical Director, Robert Hodge.

CCSO’s 2015/16 season brings new repertoire to our audiences as well as providing the opportunity to hear some well-known, previously performed works. We hope every one of them will give you as much enjoyment as we in the orchestra gain from playing the works. To view our 2015/16 season brochure click here.

Comments from recent audience members include: "Superb! We thoroughly enjoyed every piece. Joo Yeon Sir was so assured playing the Glazunov violin concerto - a real privilege to be there to listen. The final piece - Berlioz's Symphonie fantastique - was just that - fantastic! Overall it was a really nice concert, an interesting programme, played wonderfully, and very greatly enjoyed." (Lee and Paula Smith, April 2016) "The City of Cambridge Symphony Orchestra provides audiences with a wonderfully stimulating series of high-quality concerts here in Cambridge”(Cambridge Evening News, February 2016)‘Thank you for yet another excellent concert last night.   I really thought I knew The Planets suite but the clarity and passion revealed much that I hadn't previously appreciated! Indeed this sort of thing has been a feature of the concerts throughout."(Robert Arnold, a member of the CCSO Friends Scheme, May 2015)In May 2014, Mike Levy, Local Secrets, said "the orchestra rose to the occasion with some outstanding playing in the woodwinds and strings.” In November 2014, Sally Palmer, Membership and Projects Coordinator, Making Music said "I enjoyed the concert on Saturday, thank you, it was fantastic. For 'In Search of Strategy' the collaboration with Lesley Fotherby was mesmerising, I've not experienced anything like that before and it was brilliant!”
