Orchestra Seattle (Symphony Orchestra)

Founded: 1979 - Seattle, Washington, USA

Orchestra Seattle (= OS) is a 60-member semiprofessional orchestra. The membership includes professional musicians, music teachers, and highly skilled amateurs who choose to work together under the direction of George Shangrow. Membership is by audition and performers join in the commitment to maintaining excellence in artistic performance and to participate in the unique contribution that Orchestra Seattle, together with the Seattle Chamber Singers, brings to audiences in the Seattle area.

During its twenty-four year history, the orchestra has made an extended sojourn through the heart of the orchestral literature and has sought to promote new music by Northwest composers. In collaboration with conductor George Shangrow and the Seattle Chamber Singers, Orchestra Seattle has attained special recognition for their interpretations of the music of George Frideric Handel and J.S. Bach.
