About Orchestra of St. Luke’s
Orchestra of St. Luke’s was formed in 1979 when St. Luke’s Chamber Ensemble, founded in 1974, expanded to perform orchestral works at Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts, where OSL remains as the center’s summer orchestra-in-residence today. Each season, the Orchestra performs at New York’s major concert venues, playing a wide range of musical styles and genres and collaborating with artists ranging from Renée Fleming and Joshua Bell to Bono and Metallica. The Orchestra has participated in 118 recordings, four of which have won Grammy Awards, has commissioned more than 50 new works, and has given more than 175 world, U.S., and New York City premieres. In September 2018, the world-renowned conductor of Baroque and Classical repertoire Bernard Labadie joined OSL as Principal Conductor, continuing the Orchestra’s long tradition of working with champions of historical performance practice.
