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 Orchestra Society of Philadelphia was founded in 1964 by Morris Goldman and Sidney Rothstein with the vision of providing an opportunity for experienced musicians to enjoy the wide variety of orchestral music available. More than forty years later the Orchestra Society maintains a loyal following and has garnered the respect of musicians in the Philadelphia area and beyond. Check our archives for more information about past programs and performers.

Orchestra Society's members include professional musicians, teachers, and people with many different "day jobs" as well as students from local universities and even talented high school students. What brings us all together is a love of playing symphonic orchestral music.
