Since the Oregon Symphony was established more than 100 years ago, it has been recognized for its internationally acclaimed music directors, skilled performers, diverse programs and outstanding community services in education and regional touring. The Oregon Symphony now ranks among the largest orchestras in the nation and as one of the largest arts organizations in the Northwest, with an attendance of more than 225,000 people annually and 76 full-time musicians.

Music Director Carlos Kalmar and the orchestra have been knocking it out of the park over the last few years.  Their 2011 debut at Carnegie Hall was, by anyone’s definition, a triumph. The New Yorker described it as “one of the most gripping events of the current season.” And audiences here have been taking note, setting record levels of attendance.

For a full nine months—September through May—the Oregon Symphony will be doing what they do best:  Raising the roof week after week.  Just for you.

And when all’s said and done, this season—like all seasons—is all about the music and its astounding ability to move us in ways we didn’t know were possible.
