The Orchestra della Svizzera italiana (OSI) is Italian Switzerland’s premier musical ensemble. It works with internationally renowned conductors and soloists such as Martha Argerich, programming fresh and creative concerts, operas and dance co-productions, open air concerts, cine-concerts and summer festivals.
