The Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra has been inspiring, invigorating and entertaining audiences since 1948. Based in Hobart’s Federation Concert Hall, the 47-piece TSO performs an extensive and varied concert season in Hobart, a smaller season in Launceston as well as concerts elsewhere in Tasmania. The TSO enjoys a profile well beyond the shores of the island state, having taken out major national awards in recent years for performances and recordings. Further afield, the orchestra has toured Asia, Europe, North and South America and the Middle East.
Eager to connect with as many Tasmanians as possible, the TSO offers a wide-ranging education and outreach program and attracts diverse audiences to its highly successful Live Sessions concerts, which are given in sheds, microbreweries and other non-traditional venues.
