Serving the South and South West of England, but with a national and international reputation, the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra has been a cultural beacon since its foundation in 1893.

The Orchestra performs over 150 concerts each year in its home territory of over 10,000 square miles, from full symphonic concerts in Poole, Bournemouth, Exeter, Bristol, Portsmouth, Basingstoke, Cheltenham, Brighton and beyond to intimate ensemble performances in smaller venues.

The BSO also tours internationally and has appeared on many of the world’s great stages including Carnegie Hall, New York; Concertgebouw, Amsterdam; and Musikverein, Vienna.
