“Celebrating 120 years of music-making of the highest order, the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra is a unique organisation,” said orchestra spokeswoman Esme James. “The only UK symphony orchestra not based in a major city, the BSO defines what it means to be an orchestra serving a whole region whilst maintaining important national and international significance. From the smallest to the biggest-scale performance, from engaging people new to live music making to those who have loved music all their lives, our musicians have the passion and flexibility to inspire audiences in a way that truly celebrates the role that culture must always have.”
