Thanks to the generous support of audiences, the community of Cheyenne, public-minded businesses, and corporate grants, CSO—a 501(c)(3) organization—directly impacts more than 10,000 adults and students through performances each year, as well as an additional 6,000 students through educational outreach programs.
CSO’s professional musicians reflect a high level of talent, musical capability and dedication, and are selected through a rigorous audition process. CSO musicians include faculty members from the University of Wyoming, as well as other colleges and universities in the region; most hold advanced music degrees and perform in multiple orchestras in addition to CSO.
Each season, CSO offers five Masterpiece concerts, a Holiday concert, and a Family Matinee in the Cheyenne Civic Center. Throughout the year, CSO also presents a series of chamber music concerts in Cheyenne homes or smaller venues, and offers an intensive educational outreach program for Laramie County School Districts #1 & #2.
