We are excited to present the 2021-2022 Concert Season, and we are committed to safeguarding the well-being of our musicians and audience members. Because of this, our concerts are subject to change based on the status of allowable group gatherings, which impacts our rehearsals as well as the concerts. All requirements for social distancing, masking, and proof of vaccination will match State of Oregon and OSU campus requirements.
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.
