City of Cambridge Symphony Orchestra (CCSO)

The City of Cambridge Symphony Orchestra (CCSO), formerly known as the Cambridge String Players, performs about six orchestral concerts a year, usually at the University Concert Hall in West Road, Cambridge.

The repertoire is based on music from the 18th Century to the present day, with occasional works for strings only and others for winds and percussion. The orchestra has a policy of supporting young and highly talented musicians by offering them the opportunity of appearing as a soloist with the orchestra. Tom Poster, Guy Johnston and Clare Hammond have all played recently with the CCSO.
