The Midland-Odessa Symphony & Chorale (MOSC) is enriching lives through music in Midland, Odessa and the surrounding areas.
Unique, compared to similar orchestras throughout the United States, the Midland-Odessa Symphony & Chorale includes a symphony orchestra, a chorale and a youth choir along with three resident instrumental ensembles.
Under the baton of Music Director & Conductor Gary Lewis, the symphony orchestra currently has over 70 professional musicians. Ranked by the League of American Orchestras as a metropolitan orchestra, MOSC now holds the distinction of being the largest performing arts organization in West Texas.
The Chorale under the direction of Greg Pysh has 80 talented and dedicated members who rehearse weekly and perform four concerts per season.
The Voices of the Permian Basin Youth Choir under the direction of Emily Baker features 70 young singers between the ages of 8-14, who rehearse weekly and enjoy performing two concerts per season.
The instrumental ensembles - Lone Star Brass, Permian Basin String Quartet, and West Texas Winds - perform with the Symphony as principal musicians and in two annual recitals, in-school performances for elementary students, lunch time concerts and many other MOSC and community events.
