Mission: To seek and share inspiration


For Communities


CSO Community Engagement programs bring people together through music experiences, enhancing the vibrancy of communities throughout the region while celebrating our cultural differences. We are committed to achieving community-shared goals that revitalize neighborhoods, while preserving and highlighting their local resources, artists and residents.
