We are proud to be a part of this community, showcasing new programs and artists each season while engaging all ages in the knowledge and joy of music-making.

We have postponed the launch of our 2020-2021 season until further notice and our office remains closed to the public.

We are so thankful for the kind words and financial support we have received from the community and the boost from our funders particularly the BC Arts Council and the Canada Council for the Arts to ensure our longevity through this crisis.

The OSO remains committed to the health, safety and well-being of our musicians, staff and audiences and will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates regarding future performances when we are able.

Thank you for your continued support and commitment to the OSO. We look forward to the opportunity to perform live music again very soon.

The OSO achieved its goal of $100,000!  We are so appreciative to all those who supported the campaign and so thankful to our special donor who enabled the contributions to be matched.

A few months ago, we launched a social media initiative called “From Our House to Yours”. With each installment, one OSO musician provides a performance and/or piece of music that is particularly meaningful to them. Response on our Facebook page has been phenomenal, for which we are greatly heartened. You don’t need to be a Facebook user, though, to enjoy these musical moments. All videos are uploaded to the OSO’s YouTube channel, and accessible to all.
