COS was founded in 1961 by Dr. H. T. Ma,

1.) to motivate young musicians of different skill levels and innate ability to navigate in the language of music, to improve against their own past standards.

2.) to nurture children and youth 18 year and under through the gentle and firm guidance of COS faculty and artistic advisory board members.

3.) to reach out to young musicians of all levels with “fire in the belly” and limited financial means through scholarships.

4.) to provide solo, chamber music and orchestral performance opportunities for members in community settings and major concert halls.

5.) to inspire young musicians through master classes and through performing with world-renowned concert artists.
We work day and night to improve the music education of our students, and increase their performing opportunities, and raise funds to support our programs.
