Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra


The TSO and soloist Allison Bell at Hobart’s Museum of Old and New Art (MONA)

For more than six decades the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra has been at the forefront of concert life in Tasmania. The TSO is a much loved cultural institution and ‘a source of pride’ to 90% of Tasmanians, according to a recent survey.

In addition to its core activity of giving subscription concerts, the TSO endeavours to broaden its imprint by forging links with other arts organisations. Recent partnerships have included collaborations with the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA), Terrapin Puppet Theatre, Kickstart Arts, Australian Youth Orchestra and the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM).

With more than 60 CDs in its catalogue including 20 titles in the Australian Composer Series on ABC Classics and 12 in the Romantic Piano Concerto Series on the British label Hyperion, the TSO is known and heard nationally and internationally.

The orchestra has a full complement of 47 musicians. Marko Letonja has been the orchestra’s Chief Conductor and Artistic Director since 2012.
