About us:

Over the course of three decades Olmos Ensemble has established itself as one of the premier chamber music organizations in Texas and has gained national recognition for its world class performances, broadcasts and on-line concert archive. Founded as a chamber music showcase for San Antonio Symphony principal players in 1994, Olmos Ensemble’s core group now includes leading musicians from across the United States, including several with San Antonio roots.  Olmos Ensemble’s programming has won plaudits for its innovative programming, showcasing neglected works by female composers, forgotten Baroque gems and challenging contemporary pieces alongside insightful interpretations of standard chamber repertoire from the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries.


In addition to an annual Summer Concert Series in August and Regular Concert Series throughout the year, Olmos Ensemble performs outreach concerts in local communities and is regularly featured in broadcast performances on Texas Public Radio and American Public Media’s Performance Today. Recent guest artists include internationally acclaimed musicians Jeannette Sorrell, Jon Nakamatsu, Vadim Gluzman, Jon Kimura Parker, Jeffrey Kahane and John Novacek. 


Olmos Ensemble honors the tradition of chamber music in South Texas, shares its artistry with audiences across the region and celebrates excellence in music through exciting and inspiring performances.
