OSP is a reading orchestra. We play a different work each week with either our principal conductor, Jack Moore or one of our many guest conductors. The majority of our repertoire is lent to us by the Fleisher Collection at the Free Library of Philadelphia.
We are always looking for string players! Come play with us as a guest before deciding to join us permanently.
