Company overview

The OSO has been an integral part of the cultural life of Oshkosh since 1942. The Orchestra has evolved from a civic orchestra, to community symphony orchestra, to a virtuoso professional orchestra to remain relevant and meet the changing needs of the community.

Works for orchestra are often virtuosic in nature, dynamic and very brilliant. There is also room for great expanse, lyricism and drama. Our repertoire has something to offer every audience member; it spans from the Baroque to Beethoven and Brahms to works of our time. In short, a performance by the OSO is everything you want from an orchestra concert, and more.

Score from Johannes Brahms' final symphony—No. 4 in E minor, Opus 98.
