Symphony

OSYO Symphony Orchestra

Our Symphony Orchestra contains a full complement of instruments (strings, winds, brass and percussion) and consists of musicians in grades 9-12.  Our Conductor and OSYO Musical Director Colin Clarke challenges these young musicians to perform at their highest ability, while making sure they have fun in the process.  Our Symphony Orchestra has also traveled internationally, performing in festivals and competitions in the United States and Europe.  We are planning an overseas trip at the end of this season (July 2018).  Details coming shortly.
