We’re Heading Home – become part of our journey.


The countdown is on and the orchestra is edging ever closer to making our return to the central city.

We’ll be taking up residence in the newly restored Christchurch Town Hall, inside purpose-built CSO rehearsal rooms, studios and administration offices. Together, we’ll be embarking on bringing even more musical opportunities to you, our community, so we warmly invite you to take the journey with us.

By supporting the CSO now, you’ll not only be contributing to the next phase of the orchestra’s history but your investment will directly enable us to present even more opportunities for the community to experience, participate in and enjoy music.

  • Full seasons of diverse and varied concerts – from symphonic to soul, classical to contemporary
  • Extended Community Engagement Programme, including:

Encounter Bringing grass-roots music to every neighbourhood, going into schools, community centres, and other shared spaces

Karawhiua! Let’s Play! Our flagship residency programme bringing engaging musical projects into classrooms

Platform Music-based programmes in correctional facilities


Flourish A focus on youth mental health and dementia

Amplify Equality of access to arts, with programmes for people with disabilities and special needs

Tune Up! Developmental opportunities for musicians in our communities

  • Behind the scenes tours and Open Days
  • Studio recitals

Your support ensures that, as the orchestra of this city and your orchestra, we can offer people of all ages and walks of life the opportunity to experience live orchestral music, either through our concert performances or beyond the stage.

Your donation will be acknowledged on our Appreciation Wall in our new home.
