Welcome to the Longmont Symphony Orchestra

2018 Super Conductor Contest

The Super Conductor Contest is the symphony’s annual fundraiser. Each year, candidates from the Longmont area community are nominated to compete for the “Super Conductor” title. This year’s campaign started with the introduction of our candidates at our February 24 concert and will culminate at the season finale May 12 Pops Concert. The candidate who collects the most ‘votes,’ through monetary donations, will be declared the 2018 Super Conductor winner and will conduct the orchestra on May 12.  Find out more…

2017-18 Season: New Frontiers

The Longmont Symphony Orchestra’s 2017-18 season, entitled “New Frontiers,”  is the 51st season for the orchestra, and the organization’s first season with Elliot Moore as music director. “There is no question that the LSO’s 51st season will be filled with new frontiers. We’re thrilled to present music by two world-renowned local composers being brought to Longmont audiences for the first time: the 2016 Pulitzer Prize finalist Carter Pann and Longmont-based composer Michael Udow. We’ll also feature a diverse mix of classical, pops, and family concerts for a season to be remembered for its compelling musical narratives,” said Moore.
