EVERY GREAT CITY DESERVES A GREAT ORCHESTRA.
Today’s Cheyenne Symphony Orchestra is a source of pride for the City of Cheyenne and surrounding areas. As the region’s only fully-professional performing arts organization, the CSO provides Cheyenne with concerts and educational programs that rival those of much larger cities. While the Symphony is a vehicle to showcase exceptional Wyoming talent, its excellent musical reputation attracts and retains musicians from the Front Range, Nebraska and as far away as Washington State and Oregon. CSO has maintained this level of excellence by requiring musicians to meet rigorous performance standards in order to win and retain their positions with the orchestra.
Developing the CSO into a renowned symphony is the result of decades of hard work and dedication by its Board of Directors, staff and volunteers. Most importantly, CSO has remained steadfast in its ambitious mission:
–to organize, fund and responsibly manage a quality, professional symphony orchestra;
–to provide musical enjoyment, growth and cultural outreach;
–to act as a catalyst for other cultural and educational events contributing to the quality of life for residents of Cheyenne and the surrounding areas.
