The Orchestra

Auditions

The Oregon Symphony is the sixth oldest major orchestra in the United States and one of the largest arts organizations in the Pacific Northwest, performing over 80 concerts per year at the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall in Portland and providing a wide array of musical educational offerings for all ages.

The orchestra is recognized as one of the most successful and innovative symphony orchestras in the nation. On May 12, 2011 the Oregon Symphony made its debut at Carnegie Hall as part of the Spring for Music festival. Writing in the June 6th issue of the New Yorker, critic Alex Ross called our performance "the highlight of the festival and one of the most gripping events of the current season."
