The formal organization of the Oregon Symphonic Band took place in Portland, Oregon, in September 1986. The vision of the six founding members was to create not only a performance medium for adults to make music, but to set high standards for musical excellence. The ensemble has averaged sixty members since its first season. OSB has performed at various schools in the Portland/Vancouver metropolitan area as well as music conventions and conferences. It performed at such prestigious events as the Oregon Music Educators Conference, the All-Northwest MENC Convention, the Western International Band Clinic, and, in December 2006, was the first adult community band in Oregon invited to play at the Midwest Clinic in Chicago at its 60th year celebration. In December 2007, OSB was awarded the Sudler Silver Scroll Award by the John Phillip Sousa Foundation, recognizing OSB as one of the outstanding community bands in the United States.

Two performances:
- Wednesday, May 8, 7:30pm at the Patricia Reser Center for the Arts in Beaverton
- Saturday, May 18, 7:30pm at Sam Barlow High School in Portland

About Oregon Symphonic Band

OSB is Oregon’s premier symphonic band based in Portland, Oregon (USA). It was originally formed in 1986 to allow local professional and expert amateur musicians (many of them music teachers and band directors) to play challenging wind ensemble music. The award-winning band is comprised of 65 brass, woodwind and percussion musicians. They all volunteer to play together for their love of music. These passionate musicians are some of the area's best professional and amateur instrumentalists.
