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, with the ability to announce programs and provide narrations in both English and Spanish. 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.
Some recent examples of OSM Quintet outreach performances
- Concert at Edison Elementary School, Santa Monica
- Concert at Lincoln Middle School, Santa Monica
- Concert at Miles Memorial Playhouse, Santa Monica
More recently, OSM has been expanding its community outreach with additional OSM ensembles performing in a variety of locations. An OSM String Quartet performed at the Santa Monica “Y”, OSM trios, duets, and soloists have performed at the Santa Monica Main Library Auditorium, Reed Park, and various other outdoor locations.For inquiries about the OSM Woodwind Quintet and other OSM music ensembles, please send an email to Office on the contact form or call 310-525-7618.
