Careers

The Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra is one of Australia’s leading performing arts companies and part of the DNA of Tasmanian cultural life – we have been inspiring, invigorating, and delighting audiences through music since 1948.

Each year, our 47-piece orchestra performs an extensive and varied concert season, undertakes a significant recording schedule, delivers meaningful community engagement projects, and provides intensive training programs for players, composers, and conductors.  

We are recognised across the island and throughout the world for our distinctive artistic identity that is forged from our people and our place - inherently influenced and inspired by its home in lutruwita / Tasmania, the untouched wilderness and thriving cultural life of our state make it an inspiring and internationally sought-after location to live and work.  

The TSO community (musicians, staff, board, chorus, and supporters alike) is enterprising, curious, collaborative, and committed. United by a love of music and with a strong esprit de corps, employees are empowered to bring new and bold ideas to the table, and we actively strive to maintain a workplace that is welcoming, inclusive, and safe for all.
