Friday, Jan. 18: Orchestra Santa Monica Woodwind Quintet

The OSM Woodwind Quintet is a cornerstone in Orchestra Santa Monica’s educational and community outreach. The quintet’s mission is to provide live music programs in traditionally under-served parts of our community. The quintet often performs in Title I schools, whose students have little access to live concert music. By incorporating educational talks into each performance, the quintet enhances the learning experience for younger audiences and helps introduce them to new or unfamiliar genres.

Join them for a trip from the comfort of your seat.

Friday, Jan 25: Hart Pulse Dance Company
