Matinée concerts to make your afternoons less ordinary
The Orchestra will be 100 years old in 2020, and we still think that music should be enjoyed at any time of day, which is why we have an extensive matinée concert series so you can hear great music at a time that suits you.
Spend the afternoon at Symphony Hall with our world-class orchestra and stunning guest soloists. Our series of Matinée concerts includes no less than three tantalising Beethoven symphonies, Holst’s masterpiece The Planets (100 years after it was heard in Birmingham for the very first time), and the exquisite CBSO Youth Orchestra conducted by Principal Guest Conductor Kazuki Yamada...
Many of our Matinées also come complete with free pre-concert CBSO+ events, uncovering the stories behind the music – look out for them in individual concert listings.
