Are you bewitched, bothered or bewildered when you listen to contemporary music?  As the CBSO launches the most ambitious commissioning programme of this – or pretty much any other – orchestra’s history, we want to invite you to share the excitement and intriguing new sounds that are being created by today’s composers. Paul Rissmann will be your entertaining guide to these brave new worlds, and the full CBSO (plus a large screen) will illustrate his journey with short pieces by a wide range of our most engaging composers. 


For events sold by THSH Box Office, the THSH per-ticket commission of £3 (£2.50 for online bookings) is included in the price of every individual ticket priced over £13. Tickets purchased as part of a CBSO Concert Package are exempt. For full details see cbso.co.uk/terms.
