TSO Live Sessions are a laid back and relaxed way to experience the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra. You’ll hear The Carnival of the Animals, excerpts from a Mozart opera, new works by a Tasmanian composer & more, all performed by a pint-sized orchestra. Speaking of pints, there’s a bar on site and food trucks are parked nearby. It’s the perfect night out for family and friends!

The Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra has been inspiring, invigorating and entertaining audiences since 1948. Based in Hobart’s Federation Concert Hall, the 47-piece TSO performs an extensive and varied concert season in Hobart, a smaller season in Launceston as well as concerts elsewhere in Tasmania. The TSO enjoys a profile well beyond the shores of the island state, having taken out major national awards in recent years for performances and recordings. Further afield, the orchestra has toured Asia, Europe, North and South America and the Middle East. Eager to connect with as many Tasmanians as possible, the TSO offers a wide-ranging education and outreach program and attracts diverse audiences to its highly successful Live Sessions concerts, which are given in sheds, microbreweries and other non-traditional venues. A still wider audience has been reached though collaborations with Victorian Opera, Mona Foma and Dark Mofo. The TSO is at the forefront of nurturing the next generation of composers and conductors with intensive training programs such as the Australian Composers’ School, Australian Conducting Academy and Louise Crossley Conducting Workshop. A much-recorded orchestra, the TSO has over 80 CDs in its catalogue, including more than 20 in the Australian Composer Series on ABC Classics and 17 in the Romantic Piano Concerto Series on the British label Hyperion. For works which require choral forces, the TSO is joined by the TSO Chorus, an auditioned group of approximately 80 voices. Eivind Aadland is the orchestra’s Chief Conductor and Artistic Director.
