Orchestra Santa Monica believes in the future of classical music and proudly nurtures the community’s interest in live concert music. In addition to its full orchestra, OSM provides smaller music ensembles (e.g., quintets, quartets, trios, duos) for a wide range of events. For example,
- Jan 2019: The OSM Woodwind Quintet is performing works from their “Music from Around the World” theme in two Santa Monica schools
- Dec 5, 2018: The OSM String Quartet provided a free concert at the Santa Monica Family YMCA
- July 15, 2018: A clarinet quintet featuring OSM musicians and guest players performed at the Laemmle Monica Film Center
(*) The OSM Woodwind Quintet is a cornerstone in Orchestra Santa Monica’s educational and community outreach. A large portion of the quintet’s focus is to provide live music programs to schools, local churches, 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.
