110 years of exceptional classical music in Corvallis

Dr. Marlan Carlson

Conducted by music director Marlan Carlson, the orchestra brings classical music from Bach to Bernstein to Corvallis. Distinguished local and visiting soloists are a regular feature of our concerts. Choral music, conducted by Steven Zielke, OSU director of choral studies, is a treasured part of the season.

The Symphony also helps to bring outstanding student musicians to OSU. These students, who major in everything from engineering to zoology, are excited to play in the orchestra.

Concerts are held in the LaSells Stewart Center Austin Auditorium located at 26th Street and Western Boulevard on the OSU campus. Ample free parking is available. Wheelchair spaces are available on the main floor of the auditorium.

Concert programs are subject to change without notice.

Mahler: Symphony No. 7

In the words of Gustav Mahler, “a symphony must express the world.”  And indeed, in Maestro Carlson’s words, “this particular symphony represents the very apotheosis of those words.”  Of all of the Mahler symphonies which the Orchestra has presented over the last few years, (#s 1, 2, 5, and 6), Number Seven pushes both the orchestra and the audience to yet another level in its intensity and its complexity.  Because of the huge numbers of players required for a performance of this work, (over 130), few if any town/gown orchestras can even dream about such an undertaking.  Moreover, because of the forces required, very few professional orchestras can mount these larger symphonies of Mahler.  It’s a tribute to the community and the university that these stupendous symphonies can be heard live in this city.
