The Thessaloniki State Symphony Orchestra is one of the two leading symphonic ensembles of Greece. It extensive repertoire includes works from the baroque to the avant-garde. The T.S.S.O. was founded in 1959 by the Greek composer Solon Michaelides and became a state orchestra in 1966. After its founder, many important Greek musicians became directors of the T.S.S.O. such as Georgios Thymis, Alkis Baltas, Karolos Trikolidis, Kosmas Galileas, Konstantinos Patsalides, Leonidas Kavakos, Mikis Michaelides and Myron Michailidis. Today the T.S.S.O. numbers approximately 120 musicians and its current artistic director is Alexandre Myrat. The T.S.S.O. organizes weekly concerts of symphonic music and covers a wide range of artistic activities and educational programmes. The orchestra gives many Greek and world premières in order to promote the Greek musical heritage and records for international labels, such as BIS, Naxos and EMI Classics. The T.S.S.O. has also performed abroad at Valencia, Beijing, Prague, Florence, Pistoia, Berlin, Strasbourg and elsewhere.
