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!

We are having some open rehearsals!  We are especially looking for violinists.  Attending an open rehearsal is a great way to try playing with the group without making a commitment.  You just need to bring your instrument and a music stand.  Music will be provided for you.  The open rehearsal dates are March 25 and April 1.  You do not need to contact us to attend one of the open rehearsals, just show up.

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.
