Upcoming Concerts

A note from our Music Director regarding the current crisis:

We are Artists: Our way will be long in this fight and things will NOT work out the way we hope.

This means that our resolve to work together and be together must be strong.

In the interval, please be safe, contact one another, PRACTICE, and remember, to quote HRH Queen Elizabeth II: 

“We will be with our friends again; we will be with our families again; we will meet again.”

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we are sadly unable to finish our 2019-2020 season. We are grateful for our health and community, and excited to begin our 2020-2021 season with our concert previously scheduled for May 2020. 

The Centre Symphony Orchestra (CSO), founded in 1960 and celebrating over 60 years of service to New Yorkers, is one of the City’s oldest and most esteemed community-based orchestras. The Centre Symphony Orchestra is open to music amateurs and music students, as well as semi-professional and professional players, who rehearse weekly on Tuesday nights from October through May, and prepare and present three concerts per year.
