The OSM is an artistic organization of international calibre that seeks to present the world's repertoire of symphonic music and concert artists of international stature to the broadest possible audience. The OSM plays a social and institutional role, investing in the development of every form of symphonic and classical music in its own milieu. The OSM is a professionnal organization that encourages innovation and excellence.
The excellence of the OSM has been demonstrated in the course of over 40 national and international tours. The Orchestra has toured in Asia nine times, visiting Japan on eight of those, and has toured Europe on ten occasions and South America twice. The OSM has also performed at the Hollywood Bowl, as well as the Ravinia and Tanglewood festivals. Moreover, from 1982 to 2004 the Orchestra has been an almost annual visitor to Carnegie Hall, where it played to packed houses. The March 8, 2008 concert marked the Orchestra’s Carnegie Hall debut under Maestro Nagano, and they embarked on a multi-city tour of Japan and South Korea in April of that same year. Their April 2009 European tour marked the Orchestra’s first multi-city tour of the continent in 10 years.
