The OSM Woodwind Quintet has been a cornerstone in Orchestra Santa Monica’s educational and community outreach since OSM was founded in 2012. The quintet’s focus is to provide live music programs to schools and neighborhood organizations. The quintet often performs in Title I schools, whose students have little access to live concert music. By incorporating educational talks into each performance, the quintet enhances the learning experience for younger audiences and helps introduce them to new or unfamiliar genres.  More recently, OSM has been expanding its community outreach with additional OSM ensembles performing in a variety of locations.
