The Oregon Symphony's mission is to: Inspire a love and understanding of music in our lives by bringing great music to all. Its primary goal, in the words of Music Director Carlos Kalmar, is to "touch the heart and soul of every Oregonian."
Impact Summary from the Nonprofit Since its establishment in 1896, the Oregon Symphony has introduced fine live orchestral music to Oregonians of all ages. Its artistic quality has most recently been recognized as one of only seven orchestras selected to perform at Carnegie Hall for the first “Spring for Music” festival (May 2011). Although centered in Portland, the Oregon Symphony has maintained a regular concert series in Salem for over 50 years; performs annually in Newberg and less regularly elsewhere in our region and around the state. As the employer of over 110 people (76 in the orchestra, 3 conductors and 34 staff) plus hundreds of contracted guest artists, Oregon Symphony is one of the largest arts employers in the state, second only to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland. These employees live, raise their families and pay taxes in Oregon. They also participate in the community in numerous ways, from volunteer work in the schools and local nonprofits to teaching music and performing with numerous smaller music ensembles of all types.
