2013–2014 Season

Welcome to Orchestra Seattle and the Seattle Chamber Singers’ exciting debut with Clinton Smith as our newly appointed music director. Clinton’s rapport with our singers and instrumentalists last season was instantaneous—revealing a deep understanding of OSSCS’s history, exciting ideas for the future, and a truly exuberant love of music. We are thrilled to welcome him into our community.

Thank you for your support of OSSCS over the years and for joining us for a wonderful 44th season of joyous music making.
