Orchestra of St. Luke’s
Now in its 37th year, Orchestra of St. Luke’s (OSL) is one of America’s foremost and most versatile ensembles. St. Luke’s Chamber Ensemble consists of 22 virtuoso artists who form the artistic core of OSL. Dedicated to engaging audiences throughout New York City and beyond, OSL performs approximately 70 orchestral, chamber and educational concerts each year—including an annual orchestra series at Carnegie Hall, an annual chamber music series at The Morgan Library & Museum and Brooklyn Museum, a new series of free programs at The DiMenna Center for Classical Music entitled OSL@DMC and summer concerts as Orchestra-in-Residence at the Caramoor International Music Festival. OSL’s Principal Conductor is Pablo Heras-Casado.
OSL collaborates regularly with the world’s great artists, such as Renée Fleming, Yo-Yo Ma, Jessye Norman, Anna Netrebko, Anne-Sophie Mutter, Mark Morris Dance Group, Peter Gabriel, Sting, Elton John and many more. In March 2011, OSL opened The DiMenna Center for Classical Music—its first permanent home, and New York City’s first rehearsal and recording facility dedicated to classical music. Committed to community-building, OSL produces free concerts in each of the five boroughs as part of its Subway Series, and has engaged more than one million children in its Arts Education programs. OSL’s stellar 70+ discography includes four releases on its own label, St. Luke’s Collection, and four Grammy Award-winning recordings. OSL has commissioned more than 50 new works and performed more than 150 world, U.S., and New York City premieres.
