CLINTON Symphony Orchestra

Welcome to the CSO 

The CSO has been a presence in the Clinton, Iowa, area since 1954 when a group of community leaders got together to form an organization to bring great music to the city and it environs. Now in its 64th year, the Orchestra draws patrons from a wide geographic area. Under the leadership of music director and conductor Brian Dollinger, the Orchestra has expanded its repertoire and performances to include soloists of note from our local communities and education systems. The Orchestra Association is proud of our commitment and hopes that you will share this love of great music with us.

Fall Concert - September 30, 2017

Sterling High School       7:30 PM

     Beethoven Coriolan Overture, Op 62

Clinton High School, IA

Chamber Concert 2017

Members of the CSO play music of an intimate nature with each other for our patrons and their friends. These instrumentalists choose pieces of music they like - a trio, a quartet, a quintet, or solo; oldies like Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven, Bach or newbies like Stravinsky, Creston, Corigliano, Adams. It’s their choice and our pleasure!

Holidays Concert 2017

The CSO presents the finest concert of holiday music in the area, a concert of the season for a Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s celebration without parallel. Religious and secular music fill the playbill, with the added attractions of local music groups joining with the orchestra to produce a festival of sound.

Winter Concert 2018

The CSO Young Artists Auditions  winner tops the program for a cold February evening with a selection of his choice. Mozart’s Overture to the Magic Flute uplifts the spirit as does Beethoven’s ode to spring, the Symphony No 6 in F major, Op 68 takes the audience for an early walk in the countryside to shake off the winter doldrums.
