About St. Luke's Chamber Ensemble: St. Luke's Chamber Ensemble consists of 21 virtuoso artists dedicated to the mastery of a diverse repertoire spanning Baroque to contemporary. The ensemble forms the artistic core of Orchestra of St. Luke's (OSL), one of America's foremost and most versatile orchestras. OSL was formed at Caramoor Music Festival in the summer of 1979, after evolving from St. Luke's Chamber Ensemble, which was established at The Church of St. Luke in the Fields in New York's Greenwich Village in 1974.
OSL regularly collaborates with the world's greatest artists and performs approximately 70 concerts each year-including its Carnegie Hall Orchestra Series, Chamber Music Series at The Morgan Library & Museum and Brooklyn Museum, and summer residency at the Caramoor Music Festival. OSL's discography of more than 90 recordings includes four Grammy Award-winning albums and seven releases on its own label, St. Luke's Collection. Pablo Heras-Casado is OSL's Principal Conductor.
OSL's Community & Education programs have introduced audiences across New York City to live classical music. OSL brings free chamber concerts to the five boroughs; offers free interactive music programs at its home, The DiMenna Center for Classical Music; provides chamber music coaching for adult amateurs; and reaches 10,000 public school students each year through free school concerts and in-school instruction. In July 2013, OSL and Police Athletic League (PAL) launched Youth Orchestra of St. Luke's (YOSL), an after-school orchestra and instrumental coaching program emphasizing musical excellence and social development.
