The Cyprus Symphony Orchestra was founded in 1987 by the Ministry of Education and Culture as a chamber orchestra. In 2006, by decision of the Council of the Ministers, the Cyprus Symphony Orchestra Foundation (CySOF) was established and from 1st January 2007 took over the management of the Orchestra which was renamed Cyprus Symphony Orchestra.

The Cyprus Symphony Orchestra plays an important role in the cultural life of Cyprus. It presents symphonic performances for audiences of all ages, promoting knowledge and cultivating appreciation for classical music. In addition to symphonic concerts the CySO actively engages in educational and outreach programmes, as well as other cultural activities all over Cyprus. In order to enrich the cultural life on the island, the CySO collaborates with other cultural organisations, schools, festivals, radio and TV channels. 

The Educational Programmes are organised in collaboration with the Ministry of Education and Culture for all levels of education: pre-school, primary and secondary.  They include school visits by musicians, preparatory music workshops, school and family concerts.

 

Aiming to promote the work of Cypriot artists, the CySO regularly collaborates with Cypriot composers, by commissioning and presenting premieres of their works, to be heard both at home and abroad. Also, the Orchestra frequently offers a platform for young artists by offering them regular public exposure.
