Stay tuned for OSM event announcements for the 2020-2021 season! For our virtual programming, we are planning some interesting and engaging online interviews and will continue with our Classical Music Watch Parties, Classical Music Trivia Nights, and more. We are also starting to plan and coordinate for live-performance re-opening with solo and small ensemble mini-concerts. We are very excited with the prospect of bringing live musical performances to you again soon!

Virtual OSM: Music Watch Parties
Enjoy music together with OSM Music Director Roger Kalia, musicologist Christine Wisch, and friends. The complete 'live party experiences' are accessible via Facebook. Each party starts with a brief pre-concert talk, followed by fantastic music, insightful commentary, live chats, questions & answers, and connections through music. Example party subjects have included Dvorak Symphony No. 8, Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade, Bernstein's "Symphonic Dances" from West Side Story, Mahler Symphony No. 5, and a family-geared presentation of Prokofiev's "Peter and the Wolf".
Join Music Director Roger Kalia as he hosts fun and engaging Music Trivia Nights on OSM's Facebook page and YouTube channel. How do you play? Easy! Facebook users join via OSM's Facebook page and anyone can participate via OSM's YouTube Channel. Links to the answer forms and additional instructions will be posted on OSM's Facebook and YouTube sites. Test your musical wits and have a great time. Game on!
