Welcome to our 109th season!
 

Dr. Marlan Carlson

Conducted by Music Director Marlan Carlson, the orchestra brings classical music from Bach to Bernstein to Corvallis. Distinguished local and visiting soloists are a regular feature of our concerts. Choral music, conducted by Steven Zielke, OSU director of choral studies, is a treasured part of the season.

The Symphony also helps to bring outstanding student musicians to OSU. These students, who major in everything from engineering to zoology, are excited to play in the orchestra.

Concerts are held in the LaSells Stewart Center Austin Auditorium located at 26th Street and Western Boulevard on the OSU campus. Ample free parking is available. Wheelchair spaces are available on the main floor of the auditorium.

This season, our subscription concerts have themes. Highlights this season include works by American composers Aaron Copland and George Gershwin, symphonies by Mozart, Beethoven, Vaughan Williams, Britten, and Shostakovich, and a moving contemporary choral work, To Be Certain of the Dawn.

Our soloists are pianist Alexander Tutunov and two of our own players, concertmaster Jessica Lambert and cellist Anne Ridlington.

We believe that whether you are a returning patron, or will be hearing the Corvallis-OSU Symphony for the first time, you will be impressed. With its unique alliance of the University and the City, we are proud to say that the Corvallis-OSU Symphony is your orchestra.

Here’s why Marlan Carlson, the music director of the Corvallis-OSU Symphony, thinks Haydn’s Cello Concerto in C Major is a good fit for Anne Ridlington, the featured soloist when the symphony opens its season next week:

“It fits her personality,” Carlson said of Ridlington. “She has that personality that is quite nervy, a little bit quirky,” he said.

And technical skill doesn’t hurt, either: “You have to have tremendous technical facility to play this piece.”

Ridlington agrees with Carlson’s assessment: “I’ll take ’nervy.’ I’ll take that,” she said during an interview this week in her Corvallis studio. Read the rest of the article »
