The Orchestra

About us

About us

L’Orquestra Simfònica del Vallès (OSV) is a reality which has  been taking music to people’s hearts ever since 1987.

Emotions are our forte, and in order to communicate them, we increasingly try to get closer to our public and encourage them  to participate. Furthermore we try to  innovate in the presentation and our way of making music, and we try to develop our compromise in quality with our community, from the city of Sabadell,which is our base, to the whole of  Catalonia.

We are singular
We were born 32 years ago in the heart of the Associació d’Amics del’Opera of Sabadell, but only one year later we transformed into the only symphonic orchestra in Spain organised in a business way as a labour limited company where the workers become the owners.

We are social, we believe that music is a means of social transformation, a factor that helps to improve our environment and an essential tool for the development of people.

We are innovative, we work to develop new audiences for the classics, innovating in formats and establishing dialogue with other artistic disciplines such as cinema, dance, theater or literature.

We are grateful for the help given to us by 
Fundació Banc Sabadellthe Ajuntament de Sabadell by the business groups FluidraAvant Grup, Bardet, Moventia, Idneo, Benvic Europe and ..., likewise for the confidence and support given to us by Departament de Cultura de la Generalitat de Catalunya and the Institut Català de les Empreses Culturals, Diputació de Barcelona, Diputació de Girona, Diputació de Tarragona, Institut Ramon Llull, we should also remember our friends from the Orfeó Català / Palau de la Música CatalanaCentre Cultural Terassa, of our subscribers and followers, without whom our aims would be un realizable, nor would it be posible to convert our community into a more pleasant space, richer and richer year after year, being more able to live out and express its emotions.

Projecte empresarial

We have 32 years of musical experience, and within the cultural sector we are a unique model of social economy with a vocation for service to the community.

We have 55 fixed contract employees, and an annual budget where 70% are own resources, which means that we are a sustainable and responsible orchestra that lives, like no other, its audience, its concerts, its quality and its commitment, and where the essential collaboration of the private and public sectors with culture takes place.

We are the first orchestra in the country by activity, with more than 150 performances per season, producing and participating in more than 50 annual productions and projects and promoting more than 170 community workshops, open rehearsals and masterclasses with different groups in our environment.

We are also the Spanish orchestra with the largest presence on social networks, with more than 23,400 followers on Twitter, 17,300 on Facebook, and together with Banco Sabadell we have held the flashmob "Som Sabadell", with more than 85.9 million visits on Youtube, the video of a most watched symphony orchestra on the planet.

Since July 2015 we have formed part of the GRUP CLADE with whom we share the visión of being business models commencing with the participitory model centred on people working in an efficient way based on innovatory and sustainable criteria, creating quality value and occupation.

“To support culture means to boost creativity, coexistence and everything which enriches a modern society. For this reason the support of “the OSV” makes up a part of our commitment to society.”
