Symphony comes from an ancient Greek word meaning to ‘sound together’. When you attend the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra you see and hear a great body of musicians sounding together as one remarkable, harmonious entity. But more than sounding together, symphony concerts are a tremendous example of members of the community gathering together. We join ‘in concert’ with a whole band of people – people known to us and people unknown to us – for the common purpose of being moved, uplifted and entertained by orchestral music. In the one place and at the one time, we experience music being articulated, given form and given meaning. This binds us together as a group. It fosters a common humanity and puts us in touch with something greater than ourselves.

You will find plenty of reasons to be moved, uplifted and entertained by the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra in 2019. The fledgling orchestra that gave its first concert in May 1948 enters its eighth decade as a robust and vital force in Tasmanian music-making. At this milestone in our history we welcome Eivind Aadland as Chief Conductor and Artistic Director Designate. Maestro Aadland, who is no stranger to the TSO and Tasmanian audiences, will conduct a concert in Hobart on 9 August before fully taking up his new role in the following season. In the spirit of sounding together and coming together, we extend the hand of friendship to Eivind Aadland and welcome you, our all-important audience.
