Welcome to the OSU Orchestra Website!



The OSU Symphony Orchestra maintains a dynamic and varied performance schedule that includes repertoire spanning the late Baroque era through the music of today.  The Orchestra was recently selected as a finalist for The American Prize - College/University Category: a new national competition designed to recognize and reward the very best in the performing arts in the United States - in schools and churches, and at community and professional levels.  In January 2013, the OSU Symphony Orchestra performed as an invited guest orchestra at the College Orchestra Directors Association National Conference in Cleveland, Ohio.  Local performances include the Oklahoma Music Education Association Conference and high schools throughout the state.



The OSU Orchestra program is open to both music majors and non-music majors by audition.


Orchestra Scholarships are available to both music majors and non-music majors.  Scholarships are awarded by audition and all incoming students are encouraged to apply.  Please contact the Music Department for more information.


Additional information on academic scholarships, government loans, and grants is available through the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid.
