Bangkok Symphony Orchestra
The BSO is a non-profit making organisation, and is one of the very few symphony orchestras in the world which receives no public funding of any sort, relying entirely on ticket sales and the generosity of sponsors, donors, endowments and other commercial activity for its funding.
Each season, the Orchestra performs a broad repertoire of classical music, as well as concerts of more popular music from the Broadway stage, from films and television. Concert programmes also feature Thai classical and contemporary music. The BSO is committed to music education for listeners of all ages. Special concerts are given in schools, university campuses and in major downtown city parks during the cooler winter season.
BSO’s strong commitment to the promotion of classical music within Thailand has brought to the orchestra prestige and reputation as Thailand’s cultural ambassador. Bangkok Symphony Orchestra Foundation (BSOF) has initiated series of Great Artists of the World to the Thai Audience with recitals of many fine soloists.
Several concert-tours for academics or schools, and numerable functions of the instruments master-class by both BSO musician and guests add dynamically busy schedules yet fruitful outcome to this fully professional symphony orchestra of Thailand. Such helps BSO reach out not only in cultivating classical music to the youths and music lovers alike, but also in enticing every community with a unique sound of joy and peace.
