Friends of the OSM

Support the OSM as it ushers in a new musical era

Together, let us carry music into the future

Generous donations from the Friends of the OSM enable us to carry out innovative projects as we usher in a new musical era!

Your support for the OSM enables us to adapt while we pursue our mission:  to provide the widest possible access to music, to offer support for young musicians and for music education, and to maintain the Orchestra’s excellence. Your contributions are reflected in the development of new artistic projects, the use of online platforms for presenting concerts, designing concerts for young audiences and sustaining the OSM Competition for younger generations of musicians.

We look forward with gratitude to your donation without delay. Your donation will enable us to carry out major projects as we welcome a new era following the arrival of our new Music Director Rafael Payare.
