The Corvallis-OSU Symphony Society is committed to safeguarding the well-being of our musicians and audience members. Because of this, our concerts for the 2020-2021 season are subject to change based on the status of allowable group gatherings, which impacts our rehearsals as well as the concerts. As state requirements change and Oregon State University determines its policies, we will be re-evaluating the schedule for the current concert season and post updates as we have more information. Thank you for your understanding and patience.
As the longest continually-operating orchestra in the state, the Corvallis-OSU Symphony Orchestra is a major force in the music scene of the Willamette Valley. From its inception in 1906 as a collegiate orchestra composed of nine male members, the symphony has grown into a highly regarded, 110-member ensemble performing five major concerts each season. Conductor Marlan Carlson, Oregon State University Endowed Chair for University Orchestras integrates student, faculty and professional musicians from Portland, Eugene and Corvallis.
We are pleased to share with you the Masterpieces of the Orchestra class offered at OSU’s spring term 2020. The course reviewed several well-known pieces from the classical symphony repertoire, with discussion and information about the historical context for each piece along with selections demonstrating particular aspects of the music.Listen to Masterpieces
