In the Spring of 2013, conductor David Möschler called up a bunch of Bay Area musicians for an experiment — an open music reading session, with Beethoven, Bolero and beer. Over fifty people showed up. They realized immediately that they had created something special: a musical group dedicated to being accessible on every level.
What began as a small collective of friends playing music together has grown into a community that spans the Bay Area. Today, over 2000 local musicians have played in Awesöme Orchestra.
