Our Musicians

EMSO celebrates the diversity of its members, who come from all walks of life, backgrounds and professions. We welcome members with a range of musical ability and provide a supportive atmosphere for honing and broadening musical skills. Our members range in age from 18 to 70+ and include scientists, business owners, machinists, school custodians, lab technicians, retirees, teachers, homemakers, healthcare workers, and students. We also welcome high school musicians who are looking to supplement the musical opportunities offered by their district.

EMSO has approximately 50 musicians who perform in each concert or season.
