The Community Advisory Board of the Oratorio Society of Queens is an advisory and informal adjunct to OSQ that lends its expertise to the Officers and the Board of Directors and meet to discourse on OSQ’s plans and programs and propose and consider suggestions for improving the effectiveness of OSQ as a leading cultural element of our community and a premier choral group.
