The Oulu Symphony Orchestra is a youthful orchestra that is continually revitalising itself. In addition to its main mission – the performance of top-quality symphony music – the orchestra’s annual programme includes church music, light music concerts, concerts for children and young people, and playing as an opera orchestra. The orchestra also engages in continual cooperation with numerous choirs in Oulu and the Oulu region. Its main venue is the acoustically excellent Madetoja hall. Swede Johannes Gustavsson is the orchestra’s senior conductor.
