Culture Card holders get 25% off tickets to Prokofiev's Cinderella at Symphony Hall, Birmingham - Wednesday 6 December, 7.30pm, and Thursday 7 December, 2.15pm. Two great composers; two magical tales. From tender opening to exuberant finish, you’ll never take a happier journey in the company of a grand piano than Brahms’s Second Piano Concerto, and pianist Martin Helmchen will drench it with poetry. As for Prokofiev’s enchanting, tongue-in-cheek take on the story of Cinderella – well, let’s just say that with Bolshoi veteran Alexander Vedernikov conducting, you really shall go to the ball!


Under the baton of its Music Director, the young Lithuanian conductor Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla, the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra (CBSO) is the flagship of musical life in the English Midlands, and one of the UK’s leading symphony orchestras. Based at Birmingham’s Symphony Hall, it plays over 150 concerts each year in Birmingham and beyond – as well as managing four choruses, a youth orchestra, and a Learning and Participation programme that touches over 70,000 lives every year.

Elgar conducted the CBSO’s first symphonic concert in November 1920, but the Orchestra really came into the international spotlight in 1980 when it appointed the 25-year old Simon Rattle as principal conductor. Under Rattle’s successors Sakari Oramo and Andris Nelsons the CBSO continued to build on that legacy. Now, under the dynamic leadership of Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla, associate conductor Michael Seal, assistant conductor Jonathan Bloxham and chorus director Simon Halsey CBE, the CBSO continues to play great music with passion to the widest possible audience.

And as the only professional symphony orchestra based between Bournemouth and Manchester, the CBSO is especially proud of its 97-year tradition of bringing great music to communities throughout the Midlands and the wider UK. We hope you enjoy our performances.
