Orchestra Santa Monica
OSM was founded in 2012 by Dr. Allen Robert Gross who served as the orchestra’s Music Director for six years. After his retirement in May 2018, Roger Kalia was selected as OSM’s new Music Director. OSM Mission: To build a strong community of classical music lovers of all ages and make a positive impact on the quality of people’s lives. To nurture young people, OSM involves children and teens at our orchestra concerts as volunteers, audience goers, and performers and holds engaging musical outreach programs at local schools and community centers. To serve the community at large, OSM creates and shares life-enriching experiences through accessible, educational and inspirational live performances of classical music.
