Since 1953, The Catskill Symphony Orchestra (CSO) has provided an unparalleled resource to entertain, educate, and inspire audiences of all ages in upstate New York – by presenting a professional ensemble of the highest artistic quality performing the full range of symphonic literature.

Under the direction of Maestro Charles Schneider, the CSO selects repertoire from the five major musical periods — Baroque, Classical, Romantic, Modern and Contemporary – with nearly equal representation. Each performance includes beloved, familiar works, unfamiliar traditional works, and new music, sometimes commissioned, and sometimes premiered.

Nearly every concert includes an exciting soloist. Repertoire also highlights the strengths of the orchestra and the virtuosity of the soloist. Performances of the Catskill Symphony Orchestra are made possible with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts, and with additional support from many foundations and individuals, including the National Endowment for the Arts.



The Catskill Symphony Orchestra reaches more than 3,000 music lovers each year, and your gifts make this possible season after season. Every donor matters. Every dollar counts. Join our donor family today.
