About the Ticket Supplier: St. Luke's Chamber Ensemble

Now in its 39th year, Orchestra of St. Luke's (OSL) is one of America's foremost and most versatile ensembles. OSL was formed at the Caramoor International 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. Dedicated to engaging audiences throughout New York City and beyond, OSL performs approximately 70 concerts each year--including an annual chamber music series at The Morgan Library & Museum and Brooklyn Museum, an orchestra series at Carnegie Hall, and a summer residency at Caramoor International Music Festival. OSL's Principal Conductor is Pablo Heras-Casado.
