'In 2020 the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra will celebrate its centenary. Since the inaugural concert, conducted by Sir Edward Elgar in November 1920, the CBSO has grown into a 90-piece ensemble with a worldwide reputation ... As the resident orchestra of Birmingham’s Symphony Hall, the CBSO performs around 130 concerts each year, touring extensively in the UK and internationally, ensuring Birmingham is placed firmly on the map. Ignite, the CBSO’s programme to engage audiences and the community, includes a world-famous family of five choruses, chamber groups, a youth orchestra and an education programme that in total reaches upwards of 50,000 people each year.'
