A series of short, informal concerts programmed and introduced by our musicians at CBSO Centre

We are so excited to welcome you back to CBSO Centre after an 18-month absence! Centre Stage is an opportunity for our players to present you with virtuosic and musical masterpieces of the chamber music repertoire and this season has been programmed with great enthusiasm! In the 2021/22 season we welcome back Centre Stage regulars such as the CBSO Baroque and Cello ensembles. We will also be presenting some daring and more unusual programmes – our wonderful percussion section will explore an adventurous all-American programme alongside Royal Birmingham Conservatoire students, some of our strings will present a Scottish/Hungarian fusion concert and our wind section will examine the magnificent music of Poulenc. These sit amongst numerous other marvellous concerts, and we also look forward to working with many guest artists throughout the season.
