Onondaga Civic Symphony Orchestra

First established in 1963, the Onondaga Civic Symphony Orchestra is comprised of diverse and passionate amateur and professional musicians from all across the Syracuse area.  To learn more about OCSO’s rich traditions and past, please visit our history page,

Our Mission

The mission of the Onondaga Civic Symphony Orchestra is to provide our members with an opportunity to perform symphonic music, and for our audiences to enjoy classical programming, through our concerts, our community service, and our outreach programs.


The orchestra presents at least four concerts each year. The repertoire consists of classical works (symphonies, concertos, overtures), popular music, light classics, and an occasional choral work. 

Join Us!

Interested musicians should contact us about the requirements for membership. Our rehearsals are at the United Church in Fayetteville from 7:15-9:15 on most Mondays.  The orchestra is a 501(c) (3) charitable organization supported by membership dues, fundraisers and contributions from the community.
