Celebrating 112 Years of Classical Music Performances!

The Corvallis-OSU Symphony Orchestra, directed by Marlan Carlson, OSU Endowed Chair for University Orchestras, is a highly-regarded, 110-member ensemble performing five major concerts each season plus an annual children's concert. High-profile soloists complement the musical artistry of students, faculty, and professional musicians from Portland, Salem, Eugene, and Corvallis. Choral music conducted by Steven Zielke, OSU Director of Choral Studies, is a treasured part of each holiday season.

The Symphony is part of a talented and creative community at the Oregon State University School of Arts and Communication that challenges students to develop the skills to become successful musicians and professional educators. The Symphony also attracts many students who excel in engineering and sciences and wish to pursue their passion for classical music while conducting research alongside OSU's renowned scientists.

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

Rounding out the season will be Mahler’s massive Third Symphony.  Mahler referred to this work as both his “monster” symphony and as a work which “...will be something that the world has never heard before.”  In this work, “all nature speaks and tells such deep secrets as one may only intuit in a dream.”  As expected, Maestro Carlson will assemble massive forces for this symphony.
